It Could Be Getting So Much Better All The Time #9: 2B a filmmaker is 2B an exhibitor

Today's suggestion is from filmmaker and blogger Pericles Lewnes:

Every indie filmmaker should figure out a way to become a minor league exhibitor. The new indie production company model should have a new component for screening other indie filmmakers. Not just their own movies, but their colleagues movies, heretofore seen as "competitors." These would be small screenings for sure, but if all filmmakers could set up some time with their friends to show the movies of colleagues, the grassroots level of the indie film seen will grow. These screenings and the reactions they would produce would be a good place for higher tier exhibitors to find new talent.
