Lazy Weekend

I took the weekend off from blogging because Jeff and I were down at the Miami Film Festival screening our film Fighting For Life in the Death-Belt.

This was a great festival experience - our film was screened with the doc After Innocence in a special "Big Picture" section on the death penalty. That meant a great panel discussion afterwards, and a nice crowd.

I'm constantly amazed at how many films are distributed only at these festivals, how many festivals there are, and how even in the smallest towns the festivals can pack the house.

There is a market to be exploited in the spirit of the longtail - already, Netflix has been successful in offering more documentaries than any other rental business ever, which has envigorated the doc dvd market. Perhaps the Cafe Press model of trinket distribution can be applied to this market. A store or rental house with dvd's of what's hot on the festival circuit... just a thought... maybe someone's already doing it?
