    The Next Step Towards Your Personalized Pleasure Planet

    Suggestion engines tell you what might appeal to you: i.e. you loved "REPULSION" and "CACHE", so you will also like "MARTHA MARCEY MAY MARLENE". But if you are at all like me, you've already found enough movies to get you well past your life expectancy rate. It's now more you crave, but less!

    Guest Post by Ross Howden: "How Do You Sell A Film That's Being Given Away?"

    The most important thing for filmmakers is to have an audience. Survival (aka Economic Returns) probably falls next on the list. Using the available tools to distribute and aggregate, are these two pursuits compatible?

    Guest Post: Ava DuVernay "What Color is Indie?”

    Back in January I heard of Ava DuVernay for the first time when the NYTimes ran a story on her new distro initiative. I thought "wow, there's a good idea, that can be replicated in many forms."

All this money is spent, all this noise is made, for what we have all already have seen. Okay, I get it. If you are reading this, you are not like regular people anyway. You probably go to the movies, and all the events of this weekend are actually for the folks that don't go to the movies. Is it ironic that people watch the Oscars, but don't want to pay to see movies (but that's something for later). If we started our own awards show for the films that needed more love than what they got, ...
