I've moved the "Truly Free Film Heroes" sidebar over from my Let's Make Better Films Blog to here at TFFilms and clarified it a bit in the process (although you don't get to add a descriptive on Blogger's "Links" gadget unfortunately). The Truly Free Film Heroes are the folks that I have found that are actively engaged in working to create a Truly Free Film Culture.
The potential is before us to expand beyond a film culture designed only to serve the widest possible audience. We can have something else other than a limited supply of mass market product. We can move away from a gate keeper culture economy. We no longer need to address only the audiences that are best served by the dominant apparatus.
The most critical work at the moment in terms of establishing this new culture is not the content itself but the infrastructure needed to support it. Great work is being done in this regard, but we all need to share what we learn; we have to open with it. A new model is being unearthed. The Truly Free Film Heroes are doing the groundwork that we all will benefit from. You need to support them.
