NoBudge is a monthly online film festival that showcases a diverse selection of indie films, curated by founder and programmer Kentucker Audley. His goal is to give a home to emerging indie filmmakers by offering them a platform to show their work. He also wants NoBudge to be a trusted discovery resource for indie film lovers everywhere.
Originally, NoBudge was a blog on Tumblr, but in 2015, the site expanded to a full website. It now features new films every day, and subscribers can watch them on their Roku, Apple TV, and Android devices. The streaming service costs $5.99 per month and 60 percent of the revenue is given back to the filmmakers.
NoBudge is an online film festival that celebrates independent work, with a focus on DIY visions and low-budget cinema. The festival also celebrates dance/music videos and features based on youth culture and student culture. Streaming subscribers can sign up for monthly or yearly subscriptions, and they automatically renew at the end of the subscription cycle.
