the age of slightly less stupid

Good to see Age of Stupid Producer/director Fanny Armstrong promoting a ‘means tested’ distribution channel, Good Screenings, backed by Britdoc and Indie Screenings.  Community and campaign groups can access films such as Armstrong’s The Age of Stupid or Jeremy Gilley’s The Day After Peace.  Although there is nothing particualry innovative about offering graded rental prices for films (The Other Cinema were doing this in the 1970s) the neat thing claimed about this initiative is the speed and ease of organising it online: the Indie screenings software “lets you make your own booking of a film online, it automatically calculates the screening fee, takes your payment and the whole thing takes about 5 minutes“.  Anything which both grows audiences for scoial action documentary and establishes a viable distribution model is a good thing in my book.
