Treasure Chest for Indie Lovers

Just turned up another treasure on the Internet. This one is for lovers of independent films of all kinds, including: documentaries, shorts, and features of all genres. The site -- -- has a growing database of rare films that you'll never find in Blockbuster. The site was created by a group of entrepreneurs with collective expertise in home video, information technology, and media arts -- all of whom were (and are) committed supporters of independent film. Born from their desire to create a connection between emerging filmmakers and potential audiences, this non-traditional, yet non-exclusive, approach offers tailored packages for filmmakers who wish to make their works available for purchase on DVD though the website. Based out of New York City, the site describes itself as "kindred spirits to the array of specialized indie film distributors and production companies who believe in the creative quality and resonance that is associated with many non-studio endeavors." I browsed through the site, and was excited by the selection available -- titles I've never heard of, but ones that sounded utterly intriguing to me. Film lovers need more sites like this.

I checked out a movie from the public library a few days ago. It was distributed by When I looked it up it was a subscription service along the same lines as the book of the month club. Once a month the subscriber receives an independent film on DVD. Yours for keeps! Sounds like another good way for independent film lovers to stay connected to the film makers.
