Next Wave Films was launched in March, 1997 by The Independent Film Channel, the first cable network dedicated to films made outside the Hollywood studio system. Next Wave Films was created to support the dynamic independent feature movement. In an era of skyrocketing Hollywood spending, the success of such films as Slacker, El Mariachi, Clerks, Star Maps, and Go Fish dramatically demonstrated how much independents can achieve on very limited budgets.
