21st-Century Independents

After a period of creative dormancy, the once-vital American independent cinema has experienced a resurgence in the past decade. Even though the budgets might be small-to-nonexistent and the names unfamiliar (for now), exciting new artists from all corners of this country have found innovative ways to tell stories we haven’t heard yet and introduce us to people that we’ve never seen on screen before. This series, organized by Associate Curator Chris Stults, offers the Columbus theatrical premieres of some of the best new and recent truly independent films.
