At Film Independent our mission is to champion the cause of independent film and support a community of artists who embody diversity, innovation, and uniqueness of vision.
Who We Are
Film Independent is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping independent filmmakers get their films made, building the audience for independent film, and increasing diversity in the film industry. Though we are based out of Los Angeles, our community of members is strong with an international reach. You can join and support the cause anytime; our membership dues are only $95 a year. If you believe independent film is critical to our culture and to the future of cinema, sign up now.
What We Do
Making a movie is hard. Film Independent can help. We have cameras and casting rooms to rent, an incredible resource library with computers, sample budget and business plans and every conceivable film periodical. We offer our members free screenings and educational events every year.
Then there’s our Filmmaker Labs and Project:Involve, our free year-round talent development programs (participants must apply). And we produce two premier events: the Spirit Awards in February and the Los Angeles Film Festival in June.
