With the summer issue going live on the site tomorrow, which includes our 10th year doing “25 New Faces of Independent Film,” we thought it would be fun as a lead up to list “The 25″ alumni. Click on the year below to read up on your favorite 25s of years past (sorry, ’98 – ’00 aren’t online).

And keep your eyes peeled to the blog in the coming weeks as we’ll be catching up with some of these names to see what they’re currently up to. (If you were a 25 New Face, it’s not too late to let us know what you’re up to. Contact us at editor.filmmmakermagazine AT gmail.com.)

UPDATE: Here’s a press release announcing this year’s 25 New Faces and the five who will create new shorts for a project by Spike Lee and Nokia Productions.
