Talking Indie Distribution, Next Sunday at Sundance

I'm thrilled to be moderating a panel next Sunday at Sundance, called "What's Next? Models and Experiments in Indie Distribution." If you're in Park City, it's at the New Frontier at noon on January 18th. If not, I'll try to blog/podcast, and Sundance eventually posts audio and video on their site.

Panelists are:

    - Lance Hammer ('Ballast')

    - Matt Dentler, Cinetic Rights Management

    - Connie White, Balcony Releasing/member of the Sundance Arthouse Project

    - Christian Gaines, Director of Festivals, Withoutabox, a division of IMDb

    - MJ Peckos, Mitropoulos Films

    - Cora Olson ('Good Dick')

    - Steven Raphael, Required Viewing

The panel description is below. If there are any questions you think I should ask, post them here...

    In today’s brutal marketplace, filmmakers and distributors are forced to think outside the box. From DIY theatrical to multiplatform releases and viral marketing, there are as many new strategies today as there are successful films. Join us as we showcase films capitalizing on the newest opportunities, as well as the distribution companies articulating the clearest visions.

  • ditto on the podcast Scott. I'd also like to hear your thoughts on Cantor's new deal on purchasing futures. I think there is a market for indies here, it just has to be in the home video marketplace and online delivery.

    LOS ANGELES & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cantor Entertainment, which provides various services to the entertainment industry and owns the Hollywood Stock Exchange®, is pleased to announce that Domestic Box Office Receipt contracts will soon be available to the motion picture industry and investor community. Cantor Fitzgerald, its parent company, announced earlier today that it has filed an application to launch the Cantor ExchangeSM, whose first listed product will be Domestic Box Office Receipt contracts.

    Domestic Box Office Receipt contracts will offer film finance professionals and traders a new opportunity to hedge and speculate on the theatrical performance of wide-release Hollywood movies. Domestic Box Office Receipt contracts will be a next generation film-financing tool that allows market participants to hedge risk and provides them profit opportunities based on the first four weeks of a film’s box office revenues.
