PUBLIC EXHIBITIONS & DVD DISTRIBUTION


My movies are not easily categorized. One prominent Hollywood agent told me he loved my work but that my films were marketting nightmares! It's true. My underground films disobey film industry standards & genres while subverting mainstream values (forget about widespread theatrical release!). So how and where can you see my films? You can see them in rare public exhibitions on the USA west coast arthouse circuit (see VENUE LIST below) and in your homes on DVD (see DISTRIBUTION LINKS below). With the exception of brief clips, trailers, and two Paratheatre video documents (VIMEO and YOU-TUBE), I don't stream my features online or for i-pads or i-phones. My movies were made to be experienced on the big screen in dark cavernous rooms - alone, with close friends, and total strangers. I'm olde skool that way. - Antero Alli


 

VENUE LIST: West Coast Arthouse Circuit
My exhibition movies are all burned to DVD-R and/or Blu-Ray. When I tour my films, I bring my own DLP digital projector, dvd player and audio system or I use the on-site gear; many venues already have digital video projectors and sound systems. Arthouse venues usually offer a 50/50 split of the door or charge a rental fee per night ($50 to $300) and give the filmmaker 100% of the door ("four-walling"). If your film is chosen and curated into their existing programs, there's no cost to you and you often get paid. My tour circuit runs along the pacific coast between Santa Cruz CA and Bellingham WA and points inbetween (once in a blue moon I visit L.A.). All the venues listed below have screened my work and all have proven supportive to underground and indie filmmakers.
