Two Questions Re: Film Festivals & Money:
1. Should film festivals share some of their ticket sales $s for a given screening with the maker(s) of the film being screened?
- Since the vast majority of films that play festivals do not win awards or get a distribution deal because of the film festival screening, shouldn't at least some of the $s being made by the fest through a given film belong to the makers of that film? I think that would be fair (a lot of work goes into making a movie).
2. What are the festivals that currently give film makers a share of the ticket sales $s?
Let me know if you have any comments & thoughts on these two items.
Thanks a lot!
