New Survey Helps Independent Filmmakers With Technical and Licensing Options

The Independent Film Distributors' Licensing Consortium Survey has been completed. The slow but inevitable transition from DVD to internet delivery of media content is confronting all independent producers, distributors and their funders with complex, long-range technical and strategic decisions. At a time when digital delivery is still in its infancy, too little research exists and no overwhelming trends have emerged. Before moving forward, a group of four distributors, Bullfrog Films, California Newsreel, First Run/Icarus Films and Women Make Movies, commissioned a survey of the largest educational and non-theatrical media users in the country. Their goal was to provide professionals in the field with a sound basis for making decisions about what technical and licensing options would best serve their films and their audiences.
