Currently in development, the IndieCollect Index aims to be a complete catalog of American independent cinema — a living source of information for thousands of films, including important works that may have been overlooked, physically LOST, or simply not found in any other collection. Its companion, the IndieCollect Codex, will provide commentary, insight, and a historical frame.

“Until now, there has been no single resource or clearinghouse for information about American independent films. That’s really a big hole when you think about it. I look forward to engaging a diverse coterie of critics, curators and journalists to write thoughtful pieces that link to our Index and put the films in context. Over the years, we expect to grow the encyclopedia into a magnificent library for future scholars and historians of American independent cinema to delve.” — Richard Peña
