LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Spirit Awards honoring independent film are going back to the beach.

Organizers said Tuesday the honors next Feb. 26, the day before the Academy Awards, will once again be handed out at an afternoon ceremony along the beach in Santa Monica.

The Spirit Awards had moved to an evening event in downtown Los Angeles last winter to mark the 25th anniversary of the show, which honors lower-budgeted films made outside the Hollywood studio system, such as 2009’s big winner, “Precious.”

The Feb. 26 ceremony will air later that night on IFC.
