Best Answer

Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ was made for $30 million, funded by Gibson without a studio or distributor. It was eventually picked up by Newmarket films and released, and grossed $600 million, making it the highest grossing independent film of all time.

I'm not really sure about this, I may say something horribly wrong, but before it became famous, the first movie Cube was indie, wasn't it?

small budget, nobody famous, not a blockbuster, and not produced by an international company...

Lucasfilm is not a major studio, so Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back is probably the most famous independent film ever made. Episode 4 had financial backing from 20th Century Fox. This is based on the presumption that the prequels are considered 'infamous' rather than famous.
