It's no coincidence that I report on independent film from downtown Manhattan. Here, we have the highest concentration of arthouse theaters in the country and a community that I love.
You may remember me from the pages of iW when I introduced readers to the burgeoning trends of self-distribution, word-of-mouth screenings, and regional releases a few years back. More recently, I covered the Thessaloniki Film Festival where I got to speak Greek and eat amazing olives.
I hereby dedicate this space to observations, opinions, and quick-turnaround reporting. I'm looking forward to getting to know you from your feedback and comments. Stay tuned! -Rania
