Amreeka scores three Independent Spirit nominations

Congratulations to Liz Jarvis (NSI Features First) and the rest of the team behind Amreeka on their three Independent Spirit Award nominations.

The film is nominated for best feature, best first screenplay and best female lead.

Amreeka is a universal journey into the lives of a family of immigrants and first-generation teenagers caught between their heritage and the new world in which they now live and the bittersweet search for a place to call home.

The award-winning film was shot in Winnipeg and Ramallah, Palestine. Liz Jarvis was co-producer on the project.

The awards will be handed out Friday March 5, 2010 in Los Angeles.
