“When I first moved to Los Angeles, I didn’t know anything about making films, so I joined Film Independent and attended as many screenings and Q & A’s as possible. Film Independent went on to support my first film Thirteen by screening it at the LA Film Festival.”

-Catherine Hardwicke (Director, TwilightLords of Dogtown, FIND Member)

"When you are taking your first steps in your film career and you feel inexperienced, vulnerable and eager to make a mark, the support of your peers is invaluable, and for that I will always be grateful to Film Independent”

-Javier Feuntes-Leon (Write/Director, Undertow, FIND Member & Board Member)
