RSA Screens event also marks the launch of a pioneering film
distribution model, “Indie Screenings”, which allows anyone to buy a
license to screen selected independent films whenever and wherever they
like - and, crucially, to charge for tickets and keep the profits. The
new software, which was developed by Torchbox, calculates a bespoke
license fee, depending on various factors including who/where/when the
user intends to screen. For example, a local campaign group will pay
about £60 to screen in their church hall, whereas a multinational oil
company screening to 5,000 staff would pay around £10,000.
