Kirby Dick’s The Invisible War (pictured) picked up the Best Documentary prize at 28th Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica.

The film – which looks at cases of sexual assault in the U.S. military – won the honor last night (February 24) as it missed out on the Best Documentary Feature prize at the nearby Academy Awards.

Elsewhere at the Indie Spirit Awards, the Truer than Fiction prize – presented to an emerging director of non-fiction features who has not yet received significant recognition – went to Peter Nicks, for his doc The Waiting Room.

The award comes with a US$25,000 unrestricted grant.
