    Indie is short for independent. Independent films are films that are not backed by a huge studio. They often have a low budget, unknown directors and actors, and are characterized by very "arty" themes, but not in every case. Here are some famous indie films:

    Swingers

    Donnie Darko

    The Blair Witch Project

    Run, Lola, Run

    Reservoir Dogs

    Clerks

    What Are Indie Movies

  • 8 years ago

    Indie is short for independent and means that the movie (or music or video game) was produced without the backing of a major studio. Indie films are sometimes refered to as art house films because they didn't get shown at big chain theaters only at small theaters. Often indie films are more graphic or sexually explicit because they don't have restrictions from a production company. Many "indie" films nowadays are produced by big production companies under a different name.

    people who try reeeaallly hard to look/act different than everyone else (but all somehow end up looking the same) there are no specific indie movies because the point of an indie movie is that no one has ever heard of it... THAT is how indie it is! just really weiiirrd things that normal people would look at and be like uh yeah wtf is this
