IndieWire is the leading news, information, and networking site for independent-minded filmmakers, the industry, and moviegoers alike. Launched in 1996 as an online forum and newsletter, IndieWire has grown over the last two decades into a preeminent source for film and television news, reviews, interviews, global festival coverage, and more. Now the Deputy Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, co-founder Eugene Hernandez grew the company over 12 years as editor-in-chief into the leading online community and editorial publication for independent and international films and filmmakers. Co-founder Mark Rabinowitz served variously as co-editor in chief, news editor, and managing editor, as well as lead film festival correspondent and editor. Managing editor Brian Brooks also worked at IndieWire for 12 years, covering the worldwide business of indie film. Today, Eric Kohn is the chief film critic and a senior editor for IndieWire as well as the manager of the Criticwire network. Twenty years later,  IndieWire stays true to its mission, while facilitating a greater appreciation of independent filmmaking to the masses.
