If you are in Upstate New York this weekend, try to head over to this mecca of music history. A hollowed ground that once staged the sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Joan Baez, The Grateful Dead, The Band, Joe Cocker, Janis Joplin and many more has converted itself into a proving ground for aspiring and veteran filmmakers.

Simply put, an indie film is any film that is not produced by a major film studio. Most indie films go unnoticed by most people. However, there is a significant amount of indie films that do well and that people love. Here is a list of ten great favorite indie films.
1) Juno: The sarcastic, yet lovable Juno finds herself in trouble when she learns that she is pregnant. Determining that she does not wish to become a teen mother, she sets out to find the perfect family to raise her child. This is a heartwarming film, accompanied by an excellent soundtrack.
2) Garden State: Zach Braff wrote, directed, and starred in this film about a young man who returns home for his mother’s funeral and meets a young woman who helps him to discover who he is. This film also is accompanied by a great, Grammy-award-winning, soundtrack.
