Confusion arises because many prominent films were released or distributed in the U.S. by a major studio. However, the copyright continued to be held by the film’s independent producer/distributor who also retained the worldwide distribution rights outside of the U.S. Note too, that many of the films were sold at the American Film Market. Any film that has at least 51% financing from outside of the major six studios will qualify as an independent film.
