Great post, AJ. Damn, I wish I had been there.

Also, just as clarification for the rest of you, the David (Lowery) and Paul (Harrill - me) that AJ mentions blogging about distro issues are NOT the same David and Paul that AJ mentions as organizers of the True/False festival. Having "David" or "Paul" as your name is not a requirement for discussing said issues. Just ask Sujewa.

Wow. I hadn't even noticed that. Crazy. Yes, as clarification, the True/False heroes are David Wilson and Paul Sturtz.

As for being there, there's always next year. Plan now!


Thanks for the link AJ. Congrats True/Falls, sounds like an excellent event. I believe there is a David/Paul conspiracy in the indie film industry right now. Two sets of David's & Paul's making things happen, what's the likelyhood (sp?) of that? :)



Hey AJ,

Yesterday I left a couple of comments at Paul's blog that you may want to consider when writing your next piece on self-distro. Copies of the comments are below my signature. Thanks!

Hey all you film festival veterans,

How will festivals react to the filmmaker selling their DVD at the fest or prior to the fest (mail-order)?

I know Andrew Bujalski sells Mutual Appriciation through mail order AND plays the film at festivals.

Will most festivals not dig the fact that a film is available through mail-order from the filmmaker?

Let me know.

for yer network of micro-cinemas, keep in mind the one I operate from time to time @ Kensington Row Bookshop in Kensington, MD (15 mins from DC), Capital City Microcinema. I think I’ll buy a projector (kinda cheap @ radio shack) this year & start doing shows more regularly (@ least 1x a month). Coming up at CCM: Kelley Baker on 4/21 Thu, David Lowery, James Johnston in late May.

(btw, it is very weird leaving a message for AJ on Paul’s web site, specially when AJ has a blog & I have his e-mail. oh yeah, I am doing this to provoke thought & discussion by others - not just me, AJ & Paul, got it)

Thanks for the comment note, which just arrived in the email via Paul's blog via David's blog via Joe's website via the local Mailboxes Etc. Once I get my head back on after this past week I will have a more thoughtful response...
