The New Distrubtion Landscape
In this ever-complicated media landscape, with disruptors everywhere, and the challenge of breaking through the noise an increasingly difficult proposition, we sought to bring some clarity and guidance to filmmakers whose films weren't being sold in an auction environment at a major film festival—which is to say, the majority of documentary films being made today.
IDA-Supported Doc of the Week
Breaking Bones, Breaking Barriers explores the history of stunts in the movies, from the early days, through the Civil Rights era and the fight for inclusion of minority and women stunt performers, up to the present day, only to discover that the stunt industry is still marred by race and gender discrimination. This history is known only to those who lived through it, or like producer Nonie Robinson, who have a parent or grandparent who performed the most dangerous stunts under less than ideal safety conditions, and survived to tell someone about it.
Please join our campaign to fund this dynamic film, a window into an unknown chapter of our civil rights history, told through the thrilling backdrop of stunts. Every donation big and small goes straight into production, and helps support the IDA! Please Like our fb page, and follow our journey. Thank you so much for your support.
