This edition of TCIBR is brought to you by IndieFlix – Today we are joined by IFP executive director Michelle Byrd and Producer & Managing Director of Programming Amy Dotson. The IFP is kicking off a new series called “First Weekend” which acts as a promotional and audience building resource for films that are self-distributing. Lance Hammer’s BALLAST is kicking off the series today at Film Forum.
IFP’s “First Weekend” Series is a quarterly program designed to guarantee sold out shows during their Opening Weekend for independent filmmakers self-distributing their work.

The full box-office proceeds will go directly toward the film’s theatrical run. For more info
