The New Auteur

Independent Film in Times of the Internet

Here is an interesting new project. Arin Crumley already used the Web to find audiences for his own film Four Eyed Monsters. Now he helps building a bigger platform for other filmmakers.

OpenIndie basically allows fans (and the filmmakers themselves) to request any kind of screening of any film on the site where ever they want. Once a screening is requested, emails will be send out to fans nearby, informing them about it. At the screening, donations can be collected for the filmmakers. All participating filmmakers will add their email lists to the database of emails (and zip codes – I’m guessing this is US only in the beginning). A pretty cool collaboration tool between filmmakers and film fans. Lets hope it will work.
