This episode of Indie Film Weekly covers the pandemonium at this year's CinemaCon and more.
In this week's episode, co-hosts Jon Fusco and yours truly, Emily Buder, discuss what's causing major panic in the studio world and why (and how) you should use Facebook to promote your movies. Charles Haine joins us for gear news, including why it may finally be time to concede to HDR. We also hear from Richard Kelly, writer/director of Donnie Darko, about how his cult classic scared off distributors at Sundance and then flopped at the box office, and Charlie McDowell, director of Netflix's The Discovery, about why he opted for a streaming deal out of Sundance.
As always, the show also brings news you can use about gear, upcoming grant and festival deadlines, this week’s indie film releases, and other notable things you might have missed while you were busy making films.
