So you made your film. You did your festival run. Now what?
If you’re like the vast majority of independent filmmakers, you’re faced with the choice of taking a bad distribution deal or launching into the dread world of self-distribution.
But wait! There’s something better! Tugg, Gathr, OpenIndie, and SimpleMachine have crowdsourced distribution.
Sure, it’s a lonely road, but...
Hey! Let’s have a really cool meet-up where indie filmmakers from all over the place share local info and resources about indie distribution. Let’s build relationships where if you invite all your friends to my screening in your hometown, and I’ll do the same when your film comes to me.
Participants will be invited to keep relationships from the meetup going by joining a new Facebook group for indie distribution. There, filmmakers can share resources, promote their films, and find couches to surf.
Indie film is imploding? Let’s implode it -- and replace it something better.
