What is an Independent Film?

When we here this term, we normally think arthouse, film festival, and cheap. This can be true for most independent films, however, not all independent films will share these characteristics. To put it simply, an independent film is a film that is financed outside of the traditional studio system. In other words, the money to finance the film came from a place/person other than a studio. In most cases, independent filmmakers have to find distributors on their own. This could be a major studio, but often times independent filmmakers have to find other means to distribute their films.
