There’s no shortage of indie movies to stream on Netflix. Any subscriber that logs on to the platform these days will likely see a bunch of heavyweight indie offerings available in the Netflix library, from Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” to Sean Baker’s “The Florida Project,” the Safdie brothers’ “Good Time,” Noah Baumbach’s “Marriage Story,” and more.

But what about the under-the-radar and overlooked indies that often get bypassed in favor of the most popular titles and Oscar contenders? That’s where this running guide will (hopefully) come in handy for curious cinephiles looking to dig deeper into the vast assortment of titles currently available on Netflix.

IndieWire already has a running list of the overlooked Netflix original movies you need to stream, but below are the indie films that went largely unnoticed by moviegoers in theaters and now deserve a second chance on streaming.
