Maddy Kadish speaks with 2018 10 to Watch winner Reinaldo Marcus Green on his first feature film Monsters and Men.
10 to Watch is our annual list of filmmakers who we think you should keep an eye our for that year. In 2018, we are rolling out a new one every day for 10 days. This year’s list reflects filmmakers, nominated from readers and industry colleagues, who remind us of our common humanity, lift alternative voices, and show us multiple perspectives.
For 10 years now The Independent has been tooting the horn for indie filmmakers everywhere with our annual 10 to Watch. Read on about how to help us in our 10 for 10 year by nominating a filmmaker.

We update our 10 Filmmakers to Watch in 2017 list every day for 10 days as we announce each filmmaker. With reader recommendations and industry colleagues, 10 to watch identifies artists who are breaking new ground, either in their own career or in the form at large.
Peter Nicks is on our 10 filmmaker to watch list in 2017 for his film, The Force, a cinema vérité look into the Oakland Police Department from 2014-2016. Nicks had hoped to capture the department emerging out from federal oversight, only to document another scandal. The film is part of a thematic trilogy about institutions and communities in Oakland, California.
