Submit a Film
TruIndie is dedicated to supporting filmmakers, and helping audiences discover and appreciate truly independent cinema. Created by filmmakers for filmmakers, we seek to develop mutually beneficial relationships while not exploiting dreams.
We are overjoyed to be the newest home for independent films of all genres, and believe art has no rules; Quality is not determined by budget and/or technical perfection. There are so many artists out there breaking the rules of cinema who don’t conform to the mainstream, and they are who make our world go round!
You are cordially invited to submit your films to play on our VOD platform alongside other films created by truly independent artists. We are currently accepting feature films, short films, documentaries, episodic shows, music videos, and we are open to other forms as well.
Thank you for doing what you do; we are very much looking forward to sharing your creations with the universe.
