The Fourth of July contains a vast number of symbols and traditions that point us to the county’s history as well as offer a common “American experience” in the simplest of ways– like eating cherry pie or watching fireworks. What are your favorite Independence Day celebration traditions? Hosting a cookout, time by the pool, or quality time with family?
The filmmakers below are celebrating their own sort of independence today, independence from the expectations of traditional methods of funding and production, and they are embracing the freedom of creativity that comes with that. Let’s celebrate our freedom and contribute to the artistic freedom of the directors below!
Have a safe & happy 4th y’all!
P.S. Check out the new share buttons at the bottom of this post and take them out for a spin!
