This chapter examines the emergence of “independent” film and KIFA’s negotiations with newfound contributors of capital (e.g., conglomerates and venture capitalists), the state, and new cultural venues. New cultural spaces where new political sensibilities were expressed emerged as a result of such negotiations and compromises. This chapter analyzes how activist cultural production and consumption has been reconfigured in the postauthoritarian context. The chapter sets up a backdrop against which a new crop of independent filmmakers and their different narrative strategies emerged. It also shows the changing context in which newly defined activist films have been produced and consumed and the ways alternative filmic spaces have emerged.

Keywords:   independent film, postauthoritarian, 3-8-6 generation, new capital, new venues, personal films, new political sensibilities
