A Guide to Independent Film Distribution in the 21st Century



INDIE FILM DISTRIBUTION
Another edition of the LA Film Festival is in the books. Thirty-nine films had their world premieres at the 2015 Festival and 59% of the films that screened were from first-time directors. Audiences applauded and filmmakers left the theaters grinning from ear to ear. But… where do their movies go from here?

Scott Mansfield, Founder and Managing Partner at Monterey Media, an independent distribution company that acquired Runoff at the LA Film Festival in 2014, says most of the filmmakers he works with know very little about distribution. “It’s a foreign world to them,” Mansfield says. “They’re riding high because festival audiences have loved their film, but the reality is now [they’re] facing the red pencils of the critics and serious competition for consumers’ time.”

Julie Candelaria, VP of Marketing at Gravitas Ventures, a leading VOD distributor that acquired the comedy Apartment Troubles at last year’s Festival, says that it’s “a fascinating time to be part of the entertainment distribution business” and that she “[has] an amazing opportunity to help shape the new distribution models and really figure out what works.”

Runoff and Apartment Troubles were two of the 12 films from the 2014 LA Film Festival that were subsequently acquired for distribution. But how does one get that elusive distribution deal? And as a filmmaker, is there anything you can do to give your film a better shot?

From our conversations with Candelaria and Mansfield, we came up with four keys for filmmakers to keep in mind as they navigate the evolving world of independent film distribution in the 21st century.

This one’s not a surprise. The first thing filmmakers think of when they think about how they’re going to sell their movie is what high profile cast they can attach to the project. It’s also one of the first things Mansfield and Candelaria say they’re looking for.

Tooled-up SAS hero led charge into Kenya hotel to kill terrorists and rush victims to safety as fanatics slaughtered 14

 A long-serving member of the SAS is seen dragging a victim from the scene of the shooting
A LONE SAS man was hailed a hero of the Kenya terror siege — after storming in to wipe out attackers and save civilians.

He was in the country training Special Forces when news broke of the gun and grenade atrocity that killed at least 21

— At least one other Brit was injured in the rampage.

After getting kitted out, dramatic photos show the hero charging into a building single-handed — Colt Canada C8 assault rifle at the ready — to free cowering locals.

In another, the balaclava-clad elite soldier, whose face we have masked, helps to carry an injured victim. He was also seen clasping a woman’s hand as he led her to safety.

The man — a long-serving SAS member — checked plans with local special forces, directed sorties in the heat of battle and frisked suspects.

Indian Superman of 1962 War- He alone stopped Entire Chinese army and saved Arunachal Pradesh



Real heroes should be treated close to gods as they protect the people like a shield, without caring about their own life. When we talk about real-life heroes who sacrifice their lives, brave sergeants from Indian Army come to our mind. Quite often, their impeccable strategies and pyrotechnics pull off the heist for the nation.

They sweat it out, round the clock, on border from the baptism of fire and they cope with severe difficulties and obstacles in a bid to maintain the status quo loud and proud. Day by day, the respect towards the Indian Army is increasing and it is prudent to say that they are the ‘visible gods’.

Celebrities and strangers are not the only ones who appear to be castigating embattled singer, R. Kelly in the wake of Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly” docuseries that exposes his alleged sexual abuse of multiple underage girls and women.

The singer’s estranged daughter, Joan Lee Kelly popularly referred to as Buku Abi has broken her silence with a powerful statement condemning her father and in her statement, she strongly implies she and her family have also been abused by him.

In a lengthy message she shared on her Instagram page yesterday, January 10th, she apologised for taking so long to speak out explaining she has been searching for the right words for days.

She made it clear she has chosen to stay out of the spotlight because it’s better for her healing process and the constant reminders of “how terrible my father is” aren’t good for her so she has to do what’s best for herself.

The 20-year-old also expressed sympathy and devastation for all of the women who have been allegedly victimised by her father and makes it clear that she, her mother and siblings don’t condone any of his negative behaviour, past or present.

Abi in her post also suggests that she and her family have not had any relationship with Kelly for years, saying.

Bumblebee’ Review: If John Hughes Made a ‘Transformers’ Movie

Bumblebee, 2018

Ok, we’re not sure, exactly, how to say this. It’s, um … well … right, fine [deep breath]. We’ll just say it.

So Bumblebee is a spin-off of the Transformers series, those Michael Bay movies of sound and fury and volume and lukewarm metal-on-metal action that are based on a line of toys, because cinema. You probably remember him somewhere within the haze of your post–Transformers-movies-screening memories, as very few human beings can recall much from those trainwreck blockbusters about good ‘bots and bad ‘bots, cars and jets, the fate of the world (we think?), etc. He’s the one who’s yellow and black, hence the name. Good friend of Optimus Prime. Hates Decepticons. Turns into a bitchin’ Camaro.

And the movie … it’s good. Not just “not bad.” It’s actually good.

Imagine if John Hughes made a Transformers movie. Or: Think E.T., but with auto parts. Or, possibly: The Iron Giant, stuck in a world where only ’80s action movies and vintage teen-angst movies exist. Or — and here’s where things admittedly get weird — an extension of a franchise not known for anything besides “big robots make boom,” only one with personality, wit, tenderness, imagination, emotional grounding, performances that don’t get drowned out by din and a soundtrack that favors The Smiths over Imagine Dragons.

We know, it’s a lot to process. Feel free to take a minute.
