The aim of this site is to offer a resource for anyone interested in the study of American indie film. Its main target audience is students and other academics involved in this field. But I hope it will also be of interest to a wider constituency, including members of the indie film community itself and anyone else interested in this fascinating part of the movie landscape.
Material you can find here includes a list of relevant publications, in some cases annotated, and links to some useful resources over on the right-hand side. There are also extracts from my own books on the subject.
I’ve also started an Occasional Blog on indie film and related matters; see link above or here.
My new book Indie 2.0: Change and Continuity in Contemporary American Indie Film won’t now be coming out until October, which is rather frustrating. Publisher I.B.Tauris is delaying it to allow simultaneous US publication by Columbia UP.Recently published (November 2012) is a collection I’ve co-edited with Yannis Tzioumakis and Claire Molloy, American Independent Cinema: Indie, indiewood and beyond (Routledge). More details here. This contains some great new essays which should be a really useful contribution to the study of indie film of various types.
