THE INDEPENDENTS is a MUSICAL COMEDY/DRAMA about three solo-artists who collide at the same crossroads and discover harmony. Thus is born “RGB” (at least until they come up with a better band name) and what follows is their roller-coaster-ride journey across America for a one last shot at musical glory. Starring real-life bandmates RICH PRICE, GREG NAUGHTON & BRIAN CHARTRAND of THE SWEET REMAINS (50 Million Spotify plays), the film was inspired by their real-life experiences together and made over several years in between tours and other releases.
The film debuted at the SANTA BARBARA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL where the Hollywood Reporter hailed it "An extremely engaging film... An unconventional and sharply written script (that) subverts all the cliches of the star-is-born story and proves there are plenty of offbeat ways to satisfy audiences without hewing to formula.” (More EARLY PRESS here). It then won the jury prize for BEST FEATURE FILM at the Omaha Film Festival and went on to win audiences and plaudits at more top U.S. festivals including Deadcenter Film Fest, Dallas International Film Fest, Virginia Film Fest, Naples International Film Fest, and The Mill Valley Film Festival.
RGB Film and Giant Pictures are pleased to announce THE INDEPENDENTS new release date, FEB 26, 2021, with a Virtual Cinema run exclusively with LAEMMLE THEATRES and ANGELIKA CINEMAS (Details above), prior to wider TVOD release on March 9th.
