Welcome to the 14th edition of Filmmaker’s “25 New Faces of Independent Film”
When we started “25 New Faces” in 1998, one of our aims was to cover the newly emerging filmmakers who we loved but who might not find places in our quarterly print issues. Then, as the series developed and our selected filmmakers went on to great things, the list developed its reputation as a talent spotter. Indeed, it’s been a thrill to watch our picks go on to critical and audience success, Sundance Grand Prizes, and even Academy Awards.
So, check out this year’s 25, and periodically revisit these pages as we’ll be updating them as new developments occur throughout the year.
