A new year is upon us (decade, actually), and with that comes a tidal wave of new films that come crashing into theaters, for better or worse. Not only did 2019 mark the end of the 2010s, but it was also a year that saw some of the biggest franchises in the industry, Marvel and Star Wars, bring some of their most climactic chapters to a close. Now, 2020 sheds light on new beginnings and thrilling next steps. Of course, there are a variety of big-name blockbusters to look forward to this year—such as Warner Bros. and DC’s highly anticipated Wonder Woman 1984, or James Bond’s climactic 25th outing No Time To Die—but there are plenty of independent films worth keeping on your movie-watching list as well.
Some of the most-anticipated independent films of this year will be making their grand debut at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, which kicks off at the end of January. From there, the buzziest features make their way out into the world and are, hopefully, talked-about throughout the remainder of the year. But, with so many big budget films clogging up the box office, it can be difficult to unearth these spectacular hidden treasures. So, to help you craft your must-see list of films in 2020, here are 10 indies that are worth keeping on your radar this year.
