Indie Film Junction was created for independent filmmakers and cinephiles, alike. Our goal is to serve as a promotional resource for independent filmmakers and an educational resource for those who are interested in learning about filmmaking and feel the best way to accomplish that is to provide exposure to working filmmakers, focusing not just on the final product, but also the filmmaking process, inspiration, lessons learned, and practical advice. IFJ will also be a celebration of the tenacity, perseverance, and independent spirit required to make and release a film outside of the studio system, and in many cases, with extremely modest resources.
We will try to demystify all aspects of development and production with the aim of encouraging would-be filmmakers to go and make their movie while giving exposure to movies that might otherwise get released with little to no fanfare.
There are tens of thousands of independently produced feature films in the United States each year. We want to shine a light on the ones that don’t enter the big festivals with a distribution deal already in place.
We will always strive to amplify traditionally marginalized voices, including those of female filmmakers and POC, whether the project is enriched by them onscreen or behind the camera. We will also foster honest discourse about systemic biases and the path forward to make the entertainment landscape an equitable space for all.
How it Works
Through editorial content, including interviews and reviews, we will introduce the Indie Film Junction community to new films and filmmakers. It’s our mission to help people and their movies connect with the right audience and help shine a light on hidden gems of the indie film world, especially nano-budget films with no marketing resources behind them.
