Festivals becoming an end in themselves

festivals can become a form of distribution. “An actor can really go on the circuit for an entire year on a movie and it’s like getting your movie opened,” he said. “You’re playing city after city; you’re traveling with the movie. The state of independent film distribution is so sorry right now, [festivals have] become a distribution network for so many films and a lifeline for so many movies that wouldn’t be seen otherwise.”
