What better way for stars to celebrate the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards than with a bottle of Jameson Irish Whiskey? Not only is the company quenching the nominees’ thirst on the red carpet and backstage, but Jameson is also helping independent films find a broader audience to appreciate their hard work.
Before Saturday’s anticipated awards show, the Jameson Find Your Audience Award was handed out to the nominated film Marwencal along with a “a $50,000 marketing and distribution grant, funded by Jameson Irish Whiskey,” according to a recent press release.
The delicious brand is determined to aid filmmakers in expanding their marketing and distribution endeavors in order for more movie watchers to be able to appreciate the work of great independent films.
And to make the day even more entertaining, signature Jameson & Ginger specialty cocktails will be served throughout the event for all to enjoy.
Black Swan, the Kids Are Alright, 127 Hours with James Franco, and Rabbit Hole are just some of the nominated films at the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards, presented this Saturday, Feb. 26 in Santa Monica, airing live on IFC at 10 PM ET.
