So Long, and Thanks for All the Films!

So long

I'm not sure if the headline works, but I always love a good Douglas Adams reference when appropriate, even if changing the word "fish" to "film" makes it just look like a simple, generic goodbye. Anyway, the point is that Spout is shutting down once again, and I'd like to thank SnagFilms, Indiewire and all the readers and filmmakers out there who allowed me to run this blog for the past year and change.

I know it hasn't always been the most focused place and I still feel bad about disappointing all those old Spout fans who lost their cinephile-centered social media outlet when the site made the transition over here to IW. But I appreciate the discussions and reads from those of you who rode along or stopped in with us for short visits. I had a lot of fun managing and writing for the blog and I hope you enjoyed it too.

I also want to thank our old intern, Daniel Walber, for all the work he put into the site last year. I urge you to follow him at his short film blog, ShortStack, and as well as on Twitter @DSWalber.

You can also find me continuing to write for and the Documentary Channel Blog as well as on Twitter @thefilmcynic.

And of course you should still keep reading the rest of the Indiewire main site and blog network. They've got great stuff continuing and being added all the time.

Thanks again, and goodbye!

Christopher Campbell

    I just read that Davy Jones died today and it made me sad! Then I read your above "goodbye" message and it made me even more sad! I will miss reading your Spout Blog here, but will continue to follow you and read your blog at The Documentary Channel and your great articles at I hate goodbyes! Like sad movies, they always make me cry - so I'll just say:
    C-ya! Good Luck, Christopher.
