It looks like MoviePass is getting into acquisitions and distribution. While at Sundance, it was announced that they, along with The Orchard, will be distributing “American Animals” this summer.
I find it interesting as a platform that they’re starting to get into this realm of the industry. And I’m optimistic that it will be something that will be helpful and extremely beneficial especially int he independent market.
What is most optimistic to me is if local films will be affected, hopefully in positive ways. Is it possible that with MoviePass will be able to market, acquire and distribute local films for local communities? Having more sway in what people are seeing, I sure hope so.
What do you think?
