The Independent Spirit Is...
In the spirit of the 25th anniversary of the Independent Spirit Awards, Eddie Izzard, Juliette Lewis, Bill Macy, Tim Roth, Viola Davis and others share what independent filmmaking means to them. The Independent Spirit is... in many cases, what keeps the art of filmmaking as pure as possible, no matter how many credit cards you max out to make your next $200k feature.
