IndependentFilmNow was developed to help promote independent film and film festivals. Send us information about your film and we’ll post it in our Promote Your Film section. We are also looking for people to review films. Reviewers will receive a byline and receive a free AMC or Regal movie pass and the review will be shared on our Facebook page. We remain open to any kind of article, whether it be a review or short essay. E-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This website was developed by Mike Fishman. I have an M.A. in Film from American University and have worked as an agent’s assistant at ICM, membership coordinator for the Independent Feature Project, script reader for TriStar Pictures and the Tribeca Film Institute, and program coordinator for the Columbia University Film Program. I have served as a member of the selection committee for the Hamptons International Film Festival and Blow-Up Film Festival (Chicago), and currently serve as a juror for KIDSFirst! Film Festival.

Here’s a short video I made about my good friend, musician Larry Abram back when I was in film school. The narration is by a fellow student at the time, Jennifer Millette:
