What do filmmakers have to gain from the Tribeca Film Festival’s recent move into distribution. Sure, now, there’s another much needed distributor in town, but what sort of deals are filmmakers receiving? I assume the deal structures will be similar to IFC, with paltry advances that many producers continue to complain about, and slow overage payments that often get eaten up by things like digital distribution fees and other marketing costs. Like every other big announcement that’s ever come out of a new industry player, the devil is in the details. And we’ll have to wait and see, when all is said and done, who is being empowered: The Tribeca machine or the filmmakers they aim to support?
