Todd Sklar is hitting the road like a rock star. But instead of churning out guitar riffs, Sklar is entertaining audiences on his 22-city fall tour with screenings of four indie films, including his own debut feature, Box Elder.
The films on tour were all well received on the festival circuit but not widely distributed. Sklar hopes his new distribution model will help put the films before audiences that appreciate them but might otherwise not have access to them. As Anthem points out, when Picturehouse and Warner Independent Films recently closed up shop, it didn’t bode well for the future of indie distribution. But Anthem thinks Sklar’s “proactive search for a sustainable distribution model may very well prove to be the shining beacon of light that independent filmmakers are looking for.”
