The Independent Film Channel is the future of independent film - in theatres and on television. IFC creates the movies that people talk about; works with the director who gets the accolades for taking chances; and obsesses about independent films on television. Independent films stand the test of time. They are not reliant on the latest fad, trend or special effect. Instead they are provocative, challenging and enlightening - representing a point of view, the personal vision of the filmmaker. This vision remains valid, the stories remain relevant, and the emotional connection is still as real years later as it was the day the film was released. For more information check out: www.ifctv.ca
