Test-Driving IndiePix Unlimited and Their 4000+ Movies

By  · Published on April 26th, 2011

IndiePix is the latest site to get into the game of streaming movies with IndiePix Unlimited, but their site fills a much, much needed void. While Netflix’s indie section seems filled to the brim with sex dramedies, explorations of filmmakers’ sexuality, and narrative commentary on sex and sexual relationships – IndiePix goes far beyond that by directly celebrating the best of the best in the independent film world.

Its success stems from the large selection and ease of use, but there are still flaws, and the site will need to grow (even beyond its 4,000+ available films) in order to truly become a household name.

Let’s take a quick test drive:

The Pros

The Cons

Overall, IndiePix Films has a winner with their Unlimited service because they are attacking a niche market that desperately needs the spotlight. I found myself awash in great titles that I hadn’t previously gotten a chance to see because the nature of independent films often means they aren’t coming to a theater near me. This is an invaluable service for those of us who can’t fly out to every festival in the world and don’t have the luxury of having smaller distribution come to our town.
