The Indie-Film Kid Starter Pack

"Best list of the decade." - Sam Goode

The Indie-Film Kid, also know as the "A24 Stan": for every teen/college-aged kid who loves cinema, with an extra focus on those atmospheric romances and coming of age films, ESPECIALLY newer releases. This is a collection of films that brings a younger audience deeper into the world of cinema, making the type of kid who wants to support independent cinema, but will still see the new Star Wars movie in theaters. They’re contradictory.

These are the kids drinking cold brew and iced coffees and tweeting film edits set to Lorde songs who want to be screenwriters. It’s hard to watch as many films as they’d like to with both their school schedule…
