'Twilight' gets 'honorable mention' in IFTA's 'most significant independent films' in 30 years list  

In celebration of its thirtieth anniversary, Variety reports, the Independent Film & Television Alliance (IFTA) has chosen thirty of the most significant independent films from the past thirty years, and Twilight received honorable mention.

Movies like Slumdog Millionaire, Juno, Dances With Wolves, and Summit Entertainment's The Hurt Locker were chosen among the thirty films considered most significant from the independent film world, and Twilight was among three to receive honorable mention (others included Bowling For Columbine and Memento).

Twilight is definitely categorized as an independent since it was produced and distributed by an independent film company, Summit Entertainment, and it was the fourth widest independent release of all time, according to Box Office Mojo.

Given the fact that Twilight has had such a significant impact on present-day popular culture, its successes as an independent film are well-documented and, it seems, being noticed.
