Cage Match: Are the Kids Alright? Youth Audiences in the Art House - Independent Film Conference 2010

Are independent and art-house film doing enough to draw young audiences away from the multiplex and the computer screen, or is the theatrical experience for a older demographic? On September 19th I was invited to participate in a "cage match" with Jeff Lipsky as part of Independent Filmmaker Conference's panelist speaker event last month. We were able to agree on one thing: independent filmmakers need to draw a younger audience. Moderator: Liz Ogilvie, Crowdstarter

Panelists: Ted Hope, This is that Jeff Lipsky, Filmmaker, TWELVE THIRTY

IndieWire also covered the debate in an article here.

List: Blogs That Will Review Undistributed Films v2.0

Producer Jake Abraham has been producing the distribution of his latest film Lovely By Surprise (screened at the This is that Goldcrest Screening Series mind you!). They've had to find folks all of this land of ours to review it. Luckily for the rest of us, he's found a great amount. Even more fortunate is the fact that Jake recognizes that Truly Free Film Culture can only come by sharing information.

We should all send Jake our thanks for this totally awesome list of blogs that will review undistributed films:

I have more to add to this list thanks to the recommendations that came in when I posted v1.0. I will post them shortly. Maybe someone out there will sort them for the rest of us. Maybe some of you could let us know what of these sites are the best ones. Maybe one day I will have the time to tag this post with all their names.
So much to do...
