Ebert: Indie Distribution Panic Meter "Stands at Yellow, Rising Toward Orange"

In the wake of TIFF, Roger Ebert sounds the alarm about distribution for independent film - bad news for CREATION, for example - and points us to POD.

First book publishing, then live theatre, now independent film. Next... Armageddon.

(Article at Filmwell. Thanks, Jason.)

(Also note Chattaway's comment: CREATION does have distribution in Canada! Just not south of 49. Smile.)

Creation does have Canadian distribution -- just not American distribution. But yeah, given that American distributors tend to consider Canada part of their "domestic" market, the fact that the filmmakers sold distribution to Canada separately indicates that they pretty much gave up hope of getting a decent American distributor.
