The New England Underground Film Festival Comes To Hartford on Oct. 5
The appeal of independent film has always been about more than the quality of the movies themselves. The term "independent" carries a mystique of its own — a suggestion of home-grown, organic creativity unleashed to the world against the odds. Think of Robert Rodriguez making revenge thriller El Mariachi with $7000 and a wheelchair substituting for a camera dolly, or Kevin Smith finding the makings of cult hit Clerks in the New Jersey Quick Stop where he worked.
