The annual Independent by Nature Award has honored such directors as Sydney Pollack and Bob Rafelson. Some big actors have also received awards at the event, including Anjelica Huston, Harrison Ford, and William H. Macy.
You will find most films play at the Wheeler Opera House but other locations include the Crystal Theatre and Paepcke Auditorium.
