As we move closer to the fall film festival season, when many of the best new movie titles will have their World Premieres, it's worth noting that many of our top filmmakers got their start there. These 5 movies were made for under 500k, performed well on the fest circuit, and helped to launch their careers.
As kids head Back to School, here is a collection of movies so we can all share the experience. From the wacky (Napoleon Dynamite) or raunchy (Animal House) to the trip down memory lane (The Breakfast Club), there is plenty of comedy here. If you're looking for inspirational, you can see October Sky, or celebrate the 30th anniversary of Dead Poets Society. For something socially relevant, see Starving the Beast or School Life. And for anyone looking for song and dance (Fame, Grease, High School Musical), we got you covered.Visit Collection
As we continue into the fall festival season, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the best movies to come out of the film festival arena over the years. Of course, there have been many and narrowing down to 50 is no easy task; but we did emphasize movies that fit the following criteria: 1. The movie was discovered on the Festival circuit, likely winning at least one award along the way. 2. This was either the filmmaker's first film, or one that really helped launch his/her career. 3. The movie was made with low budget, either financed independently, or with a modest sum by traditional Hollywood standards. One film will be added each day, culminating the week of AFI Fest in November!Visit Collection
