Spirit of Independence is a micro-budget film festival celebrating the best in fiercely independent film making from around the world. This year the festival will be a ram-packed online event featuring some truly awesome features and shorts.
The Spirit of Independence film festival is a unique celebration of passionate filmmakers who make films on a micro-budget. Their remit is to only screen feature films made for under £150k and short films made for under £1k, with the aim of providing a platform for fresh talent, who work with small budgets, to screen and celebrate their films.
Doesn’t micro-budget mean it will look amateurish? Well no! If you look at some of the biggest talent working in Hollywood today, they all started with films made for less than £100k; Christopher Nolan’s ‘Following’, Kevin Smith’s ‘Clerks’ and Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Pi’ to name a few.
