  • Great stuff. Amazing how the landscape has changed. Reading interviews from independent filmmakers just ten years ago expressed their frustration at distribution companies but they had little recourse. I find it encouraging that these guys feel that self-distribution, given the time and inclination, may actually prove to be a greater source of income than traditional distribution methods for smaller, truly independent projects.

    Plus, the insight on building up momentum for your projects by promoting within small niche audiences to combine into a successful screening was also invaluable.
