Voices on indie exhibition

Interesting round-table of voices on Indiewire in response to one of the latest expressions of doom-and-gloom about demand for theatrical exhibition, particularly of indie and art films.

This is a seemingly endless debate, often circling around the same issues, but there are some usefully calm and pragmatic voices here. We do need to remember that most indie films have never gained theatrical release, even in the ‘golden age’ of the late 1980s and 1990s, so panic responses are often overstated. And, as suggested here, there remains a particular space for the theatrical experience for non-mainstream films, even if it is limited.
