Indie Film Release Guide: March 13th [An ONTD Original]

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

Saying that it's been a strange month for film is a bit of an understatement, with seemingly every big movie for the foreseeable future being pushed back. But major studio releases Bloodshot and The Hunt are both still scheduled for release this weekend, as well as the indies listed below, several of which are also available digitally for home consumption. There's also a list of recent digital releases at the end of the post, in case you are looking for something new to watch without leaving home.

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia/Sony and Disney. Note that some of the movies listed are in their first week or two of limited release in the USA, so it may take them a few more weeks (or months) to show up in your local arthouse theater or on VOD. Check out the posts from the past few weeks for more movies that may have just opened near you: March 6th, February 28th, and February 21st.
