Independent Film has a new post by Heidi Van Lier talking about her hopes for Indies this year, which I found interesting… considering last night’s People’s Choice gave Favorite Indie Film to Inglourious Basterds. If you do a quick google, it turns out that Inglourious Basterds cost about $70M USD to make. That’s indie in America for you.
Small studios to actually give out, en masse, small amounts of funding to indie filmmakers to make films under $500,000, and not just talk about doing it. Hell, even $250,000. (Do you know the fab film I could make with $250,000?)
I’m all for more distribution of indie films and foreign.
I’m still trying to find someone to pick up my idea.
