IndieWire.Com recently ran an article featuring all of the acquisition executives (those individuals in charge of acquiring (aka buying) independent films for distribution). The article puts faces to the names and allows them to say what their acquisition needs and philosopies are.
“An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup. A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.”
H. L. Mencken (1880 – 1956))
