PLUG: The Great Indie Video Store Project

by Joel · December 21, 2012 · Plugs · 4 Comments
 For me, it is independent films that represent the more innovative filmmaking, the more daring in subject manner, the more complex in characterization. Because of this, I especially love places where I can get a great selection of whatever my heart desires. So, here’s the deal. Do you know of or frequent a great independent video store in your city that you would like share? Is there a place you think doesn’t get the credit that it deserves? Send me location info, pictures, posts, interviews with the owner or patrons, or even why you love the place. I’ll post submissions as I receive them and compile a list that will be a one-stop location for video stores for the obscure, low-budget, and arthouse around the country. So if you travel like me, we can make sure to support independent video stores wherever you go.

So, are you in? 

Got a Press Release, something to Plug, or a Screener available for review (or some combination of the three)? Ok, don’t get all crazy about it. Just click here and give me the details (what, when, where, and a link, for starters) – I’ll handle the rest.

    This is a cool idea. Unfortunately, I work at Blockbuster so I guess I’m the root of all evil!

    Joel, I remember an old video store in New York I used to go to called “Champagne Video.” When I saw Blockbuster open down the street I thought it would fail. What does a franchise know about good movies? Sadly, the store is gone. Ironically enough Blockbuster is headed the same way. Hopefully the indie stores will come back.
