Following the peak years of Sundance-inspired excess, when American independent cinema seemed to become all about creating calling-card movies for hoped-for careers inside the Hollywood sawmill, an exciting new wave of low- and no-budget American filmmakers has begun to emerge, for whom filmmaking is a true passion rather than a mere vocation, and whose films are as likely to reach audiences through social media and new distribution platforms as through a traditional cinema release.
Heralded by the likes of the Safdie brothers’ Daddy Longlegs, Lena Dunham’s Tiny Furniture and Evan Glodell’s Bellflower, plus lesser-seen gems like Alex Ross Perry’s The Color Wheel and Sophia Takal’s Green, this American indie renaissance is growing by leaps and bounds, as the ever-diminishing costs of production allow more unique cinematic voices to make themselves heard. In keeping with the Film Society’s longstanding tradition of supporting and showcasing emerging filmmakers, we are pleased to host this monthly showcase of the best and boldest independent cinema, co-curated by Film Society's Associate Director of Programming Marian Masone and award-winning producers Christine Vachon (Boys Don't Cry, Far From Heaven) and Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy (Beginners, Old Joy).
