Digital Bolex launched a new distribution initiative for filmmakers shooting on its cameras Thursday, making 2015 Slamdance titles “Coming To,” directed by Lindsay Haun, and “Courtesan,” from Jeremy Osbern and Misti
Boland, available on VOD via partner Seed&Spark. The films can be purchased for $2.99, or by
using “Sparks” collected from pledging funds to Seed&Spark
Haun’s film won the Grand Prize at at the 2015 Fearless Filmmaking showcase, developed in partnership with Slamdance to encourage Digital Bolex owners and festival alumni to create “rebellious” films, and she joined Osbern, Boland, Paste Magazine editor
Michael Dunaway, cinematographer Ben Kasulke, and director Leah Shore on the jury for this year’s showcase — where the award went to Hilary Campbell’s “Small Talk,” which will received Seed&Spark distribution after its festival run. (Haun and Campbell also won Digital Bolex’s handheld D16 cinema camera as well, which the former used to shoot her just-wrapped debut feature, “Hanky Panky.”)
