Editor of Screen International Michael Gubbins said on October 26th 2007 at Power to the Pixel:
"The world as it is, is broke. The distribution mechanism that we are seeing right now as far as independent film is concerned makes no sense what so ever. And I think what we're now seeing is a period of waking up to the idea that theres nothing to go back to and only really begginging to engage in what possibly may come. That makes for very disturbing and very exciting times."
Thats reasonably well put.
