The Future of Cinema: Independents

Preservation vs. Innovation

Great article over at the Cinematech blog titled Cinema’s Future Belongs to Indies (As Does Its Past).

A passage:

Since the days of Edison and Eastman, established movie studios and big-name filmmakers have tended to focus on preserving their reputations, their status, and their revenue streams, not on innovating. As director Robert Greenwald puts it, “Throughout history, it has always been the individuals – the mavericks – who make the changes.”

In other words, to track the future trajectory of cinema, keep the camera trained on the indies and outsiders.
