I’ll be participating in a panel discussion titled “Beyond Theatrical: New Opportunities for Distribution” at the Roxbury Film Festival on Saturday, July 29th at 2pm. The panel will be moderated by Lisa Simmons, Executive Director of the Color of Film Collaborative. From websites to iPods to coffee companies to museums, independent films are finding their way into the market by very unconventional means. If you’re in the Boston area, come hear about how you can get your films seen without relying on the traditional Hollywood theatrical release model, and check out the festival, there’s an amazing line-up of films this year. This is a festival that carefully programs some of the best new films, for example, last year I saw Favela Rising at the festival, where it won the Audience Favorite Award.
The other panelists include Bo Smith from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Pam Griffin from Starbucks, and filmmaker Robert Patton Spruill. Looks like it will be a great panel!
Good design, who made it?
I designed the theme for the site myself based in part on the Contempt WordPress theme.
