Big budget blockbusters wow us at the movie theaters weekly, but don’t underestimate the smaller independent films that come out year-round.
The artistry of filmmaking is so precious to many directors and producers, that some vow against creating commercially viable projects in an attempt to remain uninfluenced in producing movies that are close to their heart. These films show the crux of creativity, unfiltered imagination, and raw talent in the world around us. (And others… well, just show the beginner-side of the movie biz, which is equally important because we all start somewhere.)
Here is a list of the top 7 places to watch indie films online. The sites listed show the good, the bad, and the ugly of the indie film market. Take some time this weekend to check out a few indie gems.
