There are, on the other hand, some organizations only working on empowerment of debut movie makers.

Film Annex, for instance, in the United States of America, and Afghan Citadel Software Company in Afghanistan are of those organizations help empower debut film makers.
The movies that are produced according to the policies or politics of a country or organizations are not welcomed by the audience as much as dependent films. Thus, most of the famous movie makers are trying to produce independent films instead.
Independent Film Makers
Every penny that is spent on an independent movie is based on a careful objective. Independent movie makers are spending and investing on their movies with much more care than dependent ones. Hence, they only think about this how to catch the attention of audience in order to sale more tickets. Next, the content of their movies are according to the ethics of the society. Besides, it carries both educational, informatics, and moral messages. In fact, they make effort to lead the society towards the positive changes and paths.
Independent movie makers usually face lack of shooting instruments. For example, lack of professional cameras, lighting system, professional reflectors, and even transportation system.
