Film Festivals: Always Independent Films


"We accept all formats," explained Always Independent Films (AIF) president Gary Zeidenstein. "We do have a screening process, [but] as long as it's not the backyard homemade movie, we're going to post it on the site." In its first few months AIF received some 300 entries and about 50 were rejected.

Selling Online: It's the Distributor, Stupid


For self-publishers everywhere--whether they're activists, advocates, renegade film critics, or opinionated cranks--you can't beat the web for access and reach. All you need is an idea and an ISP, and your work is available, globally.

Film Festivals: iFilm Network


"If the consumer thinks 'films', we want them to come to iFilm as their first point of entry," says iFilm founder Rodger Raderman. "We see ourselves as the portal, the first stop on the web for all things film-related."
