It’s pretty rare for us to put up recommendations on this site. We only get behind products, books, and services that we truly believe in. IndieFlix is one of those services.

IndieFlix is a subscription streaming movie service that let’s you watch the latest and greatest independent films from writers and directors all over the world. The service costs just $6.99 a month and gives you unlimited access to their full repository of films.
