Save Cinema - Support Independent Film
Cinema is in danger of eating itself, suggested no less authoritative a pair of figures than George Lucas and Steven Spielberg earlier this year.
While the pair may be onto something, it seems churlish to make such a sweeping statement, one that seemed to concentrate more on films with bigger budgets than their low-cost cousins.
Instead, a world where massive budgets become the exception rather than the rule would possibly be the best thing for cinema as an art form in the long term - rather than gigantic robots or space-set battles, cinema, and film-making, would return to its most basic principles, favouring substance over spectacle, storytelling with words and actions rather than CGI.
Independent film-making allows directors and writers to showcase their talents and voices without having their vision shaped to ensure it appeals to a demographic or to sell toys.
Although independent filmmaking is growing from strength to strength, the support of filmgoers is needed.
One such film is Morning, a film directed by, and starring, Leland Orser, along with the likes of Jeanne Tripplehorn, Laura Linney, Elliott Gould and Kyle Chandler, telling the story of the five days after the accidental death of a couple's child.
This low-key work is the type of film that gets little of the support of big-budget studio efforts, but more than deserves it - so if you have a love for film make a point of supporting independent cinema and getting these films shown in your area.
Any film can have a voice when projected onto a huge screen, but for independent films the battle is to first get onto the big screen in order for their voice to be heard - your support is the key to helping that voice find, and connect, with an audience.
