Big News (without that pesky box)..

IMDB - the Internet Movie Data Base - has announced they are acquiring Indy Film resource website This, in essence allows IMDB's parent company a bigger footprint in the "non-traditional" film distribution business.

Without A Box has a service that connects filmmakers with film fans and make arrangements for theatrical screenings on demand. Combined with Amazon's Createspace component this would allow them to provide a unique, one-stop service whereby you could conceivably make the film, market the film, arrange for theatrical screenings, film festival premieres, online downloads and sell DVDs and merchandise. Combined with the huge member list of IMDB, this is a distribution channel/network all unto itself.

Things are changing. Fast.
