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 and anyone else interested in this 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 is now out (Amazon.co.uk Amazon.com) An extract, the introduction, is available here. Published last year 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.
