Iraq for Sale (the movie) to debut
Edited on Sun Aug-20-06 09:42 PM by REDSTATELIBERAL
Long article in the Washington Post about the "People Powered Film." This is the Howard Dean School of Film Funding, very Net-rooty, very social-networky, very now. It promises Hollywood dreams beyond the reach of the Man.
"Iraq for Sale" will open in a small number of theaters in September, including a special showing at the Wooly Mammoth Theater in Washington on Sept 18. But the theatrical release is mainly a strategy to attract critics, reviews and media coverage.

1. First time money for a movie has been raised this way,
apparently:

"Gilliam and Greenwald say they know of no one who has ever raised hundreds of thousands of dollars on the Internet to make a movie."
