Last year, it was the bulldozer momentum of Oliver Stone's "Platoon" that plowed through the Independent Feature Project/West's Independent Spirit Awards, capturing four key awards. But this year's kudos--handed out Saturday before a starry but dressed-for-comfort capacity crowd at Rosalie's 385 North restaurant--reflected the sheer number and diversity of independently produced and distributed films released in 1987.

The Independent Features Project West hopes to be able to announce today its 1993 nominations for its Spirit Awards, traditionally given to the year's more unusual movies. The announcement has been delayed since Tuesday because of a last-minute investigation into the source of some of the financing of one of the nominated films. To be eligible, movies must have been produced with financing other than from the major Hollywood film companies.

"Matewan," "The Dead" and "River's Edge" were among the most-nominated films for this year's third annual Independent Spirit Awards, handed out by the Independent Feature Project/West. The awards, which honor films independently created and produced, proved an accurate harbinger of the Academy Awards last year, when Independent Spirit Award winner "Platoon" also picked up several Oscars.
