Proof How Indie Film Requires So Much Support

If we didn’t have the Indie Film support organizations, you wouldn’t have indie films in the theater.  Cinereach, IFP, Film Independent, SxSW, Tribeca, Sundance, and yes, my new home, the San Francisco Film Society — it takes more than a village; it takes a freakin’ army.

The proof is in the pudding.  Look at all the films in theaters this week.  All these films were discovered at Sundance and supported by these various organizations.  Where would they be without them?  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  And just the start.  If you don’t go see them — and soon — our very culture will be threatened!

    So true. There’s a ‘pedigree’ process of sorts in the indie film community which is advantageous for some yet disenfranchising for others. You’ve gotta work the system! yes, even the indie system.

    @Miles is 100% about the pedigree process in the indie film community. Very true and not going away anytime soon (sadly).

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
