"A must-bookmark location for fans of grassroots, unimpeded, honest films from a variety of voices." H. Perry Horton, Film School Rejects.
"The American independent cinema is flourishing as never before, and its achievements are, both in the realm of individual works and as a sort of loosely but unmistakably collective set of endeavors, among the glories of world cinema. But it’s hard to get to see many of the films in question, not least because the same technological and economic changes that make the films possible have also made theatrical and even home-video distribution tough to land—and some filmmakers are doing something about it. One of them is Kentucker Audley, who, two years ago, made his film “Open Five” available at his own Web site, and has since launched another site, NoBudge, which offers works by many independent filmmakers and showcases them in unusual and original ways.” Richard Brody, The New Yorker
"With the hurdles of theatrical distribution increasing all the time, NoBudge stands as a valuable alternative — a way for ambitious, cash-strapped directors to have their work seen and written about without having to worry over the financial and logistical headaches." Danny King, Village Voice
“Audley’s fierce devotion to truly independent American cinema is vital. His commitment to treating the micro-budget form with the utmost seriousness is needed now more than ever.” Michael Tully, Paste Magazine
“Connoting both minimal means and an essential stubbornness: No Budge.” Steve Dollar, The Wall St. Journal
