Every (r)evolution spills blood.
I personally think this old model of "indie" is dead. A new indie model is rising.
And seriously, if you can raise P&A money - what the hell do you need a distributor for? You can negotiate deals directly with theater chains and even book theaters AFTER people have already purchased tickets.
Doesn't this suggest that these movies aren't very good? For most other types of products, it's usually a pretty bad sign when you have to pay people to take your stuff...
This worries me too. Reading the article, though, the films that did make it to Toronto already came a long way. If they have that sort of momentum, echoing Cunningham, they probably could work the distribution themselves.
