It Could Be Getting So Much Better All The Time

What would you do to improve "indie" film?  Both the business and the films themselves?  This is not a rhetorical question; I would like to know, and I am sure you would too.

I am going to start a regular feature here on TFF on what can be done to improve things for everyone in the indie film space (perhaps starting by banishing that VC vernacular "space").  I thought everyone would have a distinct opinion.  It may surprise you, but I certainly have a few.  I sent out an email blast to fifty opinionated and passionate filmmakers and got next to nothing back.  Maybe everyone thinks things are just dandy.  Or maybe people think they need to hang on to their ideas in hopes of making a buck.  Or maybe everyone just wants to play the fiddle as we burn down down down.
I honestly believe that it could be getting so much better all the time if we all just shared our ideas and energy a little bit more.  So here's to hope for the future and to finding a few new ideas that could gain a foothold into the new year.  Be warned: I will begin posting shortly.
