Indies are often thought of as low-budget, passion projects. They’re the answer to the summer blockbuster and the superhero franchises of the world. Instead of blowing sh*t up and overloading us with CGI, they bring something different to the table. A reserved, refined, authentic storytelling ability. They’re quirky, coming-of-age narratives and messy relationship dramas. They’re meandering portraits of the Midwest and crime thrillers in the wilderness. They’re cult-favorite horror flicks and macabre comedies. An indie doesn’t ascribe to one genre but it usually sports some big talent and even bigger themes in its narrative. In other words, an independent film is one with something to say.
