How VOD Changes The Whole Film Landscape

By Ted Hope

It a big question (how VOD is changing the film landscape), but we already see the answers starting to unfold. As the lovers of cinema recognize they can access anything anywhere anytime, and the captains of industry in the culture strands accept their business is one of infinite choice, everyone becomes more desperate for the curators and filters that help connect us with what we will enjoy most.

Film culture diversifies further into various event programing that includes both blockbusters and traditional geo-specific festivals, and all the various forms of electronic transmission, both in a solitary passive viewing mode, and in a more social active form.

This all access world of super-abundance will increase the value of alternative forms, beyond the feature film, whether they are to maintain engagement or deliver a more immersive experience. I think it can’t help but lead artists and those who support them to recognize the value in maintaining ownership of their work and opting for short term licenses to specific platforms.

This is part of an interview I gave OnDemand Weekly upon accepting the Executive Director position at The San Francisco Film Society.  Read all of it right here.

    I agree. I first thought of Netflix as a place where cancelled TV shows went to spend their afterlife, or where you could watch a bunch of throwaway movies (a good one of you got lucky). However, it certainly has had an interesting impact on film and television fandom, and definitely facilitates fandom culture. Further, I know that Netflix also has a “Netflix First” program. Maybe eventually this could evolve into a very indy-friendly program, a better avenue for new filmmakers to showcase their work.
