Time for some new indie filmmaker/distributors/entrepenuers to fill the void w/ a new distro co. that picks up & puts out the kind of movies Wellspring used to put out.

I wonder if art/indie distro is a project people take on in their 20's & 30's, and then when they get older, I wonder if they move on to Full On Indiewood like when they hit their 40's & 50's. This is just a random thought, I have no idea about the ages of the founders/owners/decision makers @ Wellspring.




This news really upsets me. Wellspring was my favorite distributor - I always looked forward to their releases. Yet another reason to dislike the Weinsteins.

I think that part of the reason many of these companies come to an end are simple business issues related to working with indie films - everything from competing to get titles in the first place (which may mean promising more than you can truthfully deliver) to getting the theaters to actually pay you your take (can you believe that this kind of thing goes on? well, it does, every freaking day).

But yeah, losing Wellspring is a pretty huge blow for indie filmmakers and audiences.
