    It's that time of year when you realise there was a lot of pop culture you totally meant to experience but just didn't have time for. You were going to binge that show everyone was talking about. Captain America: Civil War is already available to stream?! But it's not too late to catch up on this year's best independent movies before awards show season.

    Our indie flick checklist will allow you to experience the full film festival experience, minus the IRL hipsters. Dramedies abound, the bread and butter of indie cinema. But there are also plenty of love stories and weepy dramas without a laugh in sight. Catching up on these lesser-known hits is a sure way to dominate your office Oscars pool, with inside knowledge of the dark-horse nominees.

    Click through for your perfect indie watch list.
