Contact Us

Email is our preferred method of communication. Members of our staff have responsibilities outside of The Independent and do their best to respond in a timely fashion to requests that clearly understand and respect The Independent’s scope as an online magazine about independent film. We do not fund films. Given our capacity as a nonprofit labor of love, we can only cover a fraction of deserving films.

Join Our Team!

The Independent is always looking for writers and contributing editors to submit features, conduct interviews, and send us regular reports from the field. Check out our guidelines for the kinds of stories we’re looking for. We also frequently need self-driven editorial interns who can work virtually. If you’re interested, contact us with a resume, clips, and story ideas.
