The impartial distributors Reverso Movies and #ConUnPack Distribución have simply launched the “Indie Movie Tuesday” initiative, which consists of releasing a number of “impartial and dangerous” movies each Tuesday, anticipating the industrial releases on Fridays.
The thought began as we speak with the premiere of the movie “Captain Carver”, by Russian director Evgeny Yablokov, on the Renoir Cinemas in Madrid, ABC Park in Valencia and Cines Boliche in Barcelona, which have been the primary to help the initiative, though it’s anticipated that different distributors and exhibitors will need to be part of quickly.
The pinnacle of Reverso Movies, Sylvie Leray, considers that “there’s sufficient area for a plurality of cinematographic proposals” and that an concept like this might very effectively serve to “give extra visibility and area” to impartial movies, which by their very nature have extra issues when competing with the industrial ones.
For his half, Hugo Serra, one of many founding companions of #ConUnPack together with JJ Montero, highlights the constructive of bringing ahead a few of the premieres to Tuesdays “because of the saturation that happens on Fridays all year long.”
“The earlier experiences in Madrid with ‘Finlandia’, by Horacio Alcalá, which was 10 consecutive weeks at Renoir Princesa and ‘El que Sabem’, by Jordi Núñez, with three Tuesdays in a row in that very same cinema with excellent outcomes, was what that moved us to begin it up”, factors out Serra.
“We imagine that this initiative can enable exhibitors, each those that program auteur movies or in VOSE recurrently, in addition to those that barely accomplish that, to dare to program it”, he added.
As well as, Tuesdays are days with little demand in most theaters, so it appears a good suggestion to supply “a top quality product wrapped in a particular promotion, since generally it’s proposed that they be reveals offered by the movie crew or by members of the specialised movie press”.
Its promoters additionally anticipate that these premieres shall be built-in into cycles, combining world premieres in Spain with reruns.
Thus, within the first cycle there shall be “Captain Carver”, “Mikado”, “Ricochet, the pleasure of revenge” or “Sound of Barberia”. The world premieres shall be joined by reruns reminiscent of “Most Lovely Island” by Ana Asensio, or the multi-award-winning “Utama” by Alejandro Loayza Grisi, nominated for the Forqué and Goya awards for finest Ibero-American movie.
