"Classically, an independent film was one that was made outside of the conventional studio system, be that Hollywood, Bollywood or Pinewood. But with the rise of the 'independent' labels of the major studios, such as Fox Searchlight and Paramount Vantage, that distinction is pretty much moot...I’d argue that the term 'independent film' should be reserved for talking about the movie itself, rather than how it was financed. There’s a reason the word 'independence' so often shows up in proximity to 'revolution' — a shared spirit of frustration, anarchy ... From their conception, independent films aren’t just made outside of the studio system. They are made in opposition to the studio system, with its relentless need to round off the corners and soften the blows. And in standing against the status quo, independent films help to change it." -Screenwriter/Director John August.
