Independent Pictures was founded in 1993 by filmmakers looking for venues for independent work, particularly independent work from filmmakers who are not yet commercially successful. Originally called the Off-Hollywood Flick Fest and renamed the Ohio Independent Film Festival, the event gained followers by offering audiences truly independent films they wouldn’t ordinarily see: films that have not been picked up for theatrical distribution. Independent Pictures is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit. Since 2020, IP has been focusing solely on supporting filmmakers through the Fiscal Sponsorship Program.
