Podcast: DOMA Movies and the Indie Pains of Online Piracy

Milk Movie

Not everyone knows what online piracy has done to indie filmmakers, so this week we have a pair of stories that try to shed some light into dark recesses. First, horror filmmaker Filip Tegstedt outlines the saga of futilely trying to find a distributor for a movie that had already been pirated, and then Cinedigm‘s Jill Calcaterra explains the company’s new distribution partnership with BitTorrent.

Plus, Geoff and I offer up the Top Best Greatest Five Movies with which to celebrate the end of DOMA. Yes, it’ll be fabulous.
