This press release just came in... As a fan of both outlets, I am jazzed. As a fan of specialized film and a dreamer of a land where we have the filters and curators necessary to deal with the challenge of The Grand Abundance (of Films), I am hopeful. As a producer of films far too cognizant of the challenges we all face, I am happy to share this news!
Filmwax Radio, a weekly talk show about independent film, is increasing its focus to include Video On Demand (VOD) subject matter and guests. The radio show, hosted by Filmwax's Adam Schartoff, is partnering with popular online publicationOn Demand Weekly to devote a monthly episode to movies on demand. Adam has interviewed film notables such as Ed Burns, William H. Macy and Joe Swanberg for On Demand Weekly in the past.
“We recognized Adam’s passion for film and gift of conversation with filmmakers. Working with Adam on the radio will shed a stronger light to our coverage of upcoming movies on demand. We’re looking foward to expanding our reach,” said Britt Bensen, Editor-In-Chief, Co-founder, On Demand Weekly.
“With the pre-theatrical and day-and-date models, the number of VOD releases is increasing and film fans are taking notice. Working with On Demand Weekly will help us identify the best new movies and talent for our audience,” said Adam Schartoff, Filmwax Radio.
