List of least expensive films
||This article possibly contains original research. (January 2010)|
This film-related list is incomplete; you can help by .
The list includes only films already released to the general public at the time of inclusion, not films that are still in production, post-production or just announced because their costs can change during the production process. Most studios will not provide production costs, so only estimates by professional researchers and movie industry writers are available. These include those from the Internet Movie Database, Box Office Mojo and The Numbers.
Promotional and distribution costs (i.e. advertisements, commercials, posters, film prints etc.) are not included.
Only films which are notable enough to have received significant mention in independent sources are included.
