Making Net Neutrality The Key Indie Film Issue

By Ted Hope

If it wasn’t clear already, I think Net Neutrality is the key issue for all filmmakers.  

On Saturday morning I gave the Key Note talk for Film Independent’s annual Filmmaker Forum.  I posted the speech (A Thousand Phoenix Rising) on Let’s Make Better Films.  Please read it.
All this is pretty swell, but it truly illustrates the need for maintaining Net Neutrality.  The internet is the home of free speech and participation.  There is no such thing as free choice if you don’t know what the choice is.  To make decisions, we all must be able to access all info immediately and equally.  It’s not like old media would have covered something like my talk.

    Hi Ted -

    Bill Cunningham here from Pulp 2.0. I just wanted to drop in and thank you for ever-so clearly articulating the issues we are facing – not only the big one like net neutrality, – but issues like filmmakers taking responsibility for their movie-making, instead of trying to just grab the Hollywood “golden ticket.”

    Thanks, again.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
