MySpace, the web site that revolutionized the way bands meet their adoring fans and one another, has rolled out MySpace Film – a tool for filmmakers.
The new film section includes featured indie filmmakers, upcoming film festivals, a bulletin board where members can post screenings of their movies, a filmmaker discussion forum, and a classifieds page where members look for crew, equipment, and collaboration.
“Bands get discovered off MySpace all the time,” co-founder Chris DeWolfe said. “MySpace Film could be a tool for yet-to-be-discovered filmmakers too.”
According to Michael Wang for Show Business Weekly, MySpace already hosts hundreds of filmmakers and their short projects, and will become a great forum for directors and animators looking to bring their films to a young, eager audience.
