Making indie films is stressful. From the money to the production itself to releasing them to arranging the right exhibition spaces for screenings.
But as long as you think ahead (and by "ahead" I'm talking months and sometimes even years) you're in a much better place with getting it all figured out. Deal with the ugly aspects of it, straight on, along with the more fun parts. Don't delude yourself when it comes to money and scheduling.....EVER.
