How LOTR saved the international indie film biz

11.07.08 | Kunochan | Speak, friend & comment!

Over on Kristin Thompson’s blog, a post on how the film trilogy impacted the foreign indie film market:

In Chapter 9 of The Frodo Franchise, I discussed how The Lord of the Rings had a positive impact on independent and foreign-language film markets around the world. Shortly after a major slump hit those markets in 2001, the first part of the trilogy pumped money into the overseas distribution companies that had helped finance LOTR. They in turn put that money into buying more films, helping bring the slump to an end.

Via Frodo Franchise.
