Dear friends,

As you may recall, several months ago we posted a notice to tell you that
our four distribution companies, Bullfrog Films, California Newsreel, First
Run/Icarus Films, and Women Make Movies, had joined together to form the
INDEPENDENT FILM DISTRIBUTORS' LICENSING CONSORTIUM (IFDLC).

And that our first step would be conduct a survey addressing issues related
to digital licensing, delivery, and usage of media in educational, primarily
higher education, institutions.

Many of you were generous enough with your time to respond to our survey,
and we are now pleased to be able to tell you that we have posted the
results online at the DocuSeek web site: www.DocuSeek.com
<http://www.docuseek.com/>

The document itself, as a PDF file, is located here:
http://66.167.103.217/misc/IFDLC.survey.pdf

If you are interested and read the survey results we would be thrilled to
hear from you (whether here on Videolib or addressed directly to us) with
any further feedback or comments you may have on the survey, the results
obtained, or any conclusions which you, or you think we, should take away
from it. (If you wish to write to us off-list, you may do so at:
ifdlc@DocuSeek.com )

Thank you again.

Sincerely,


Jonathan Miller
For the IFDLC:
Bullfrog Films: www.bullfrogfilms.com <http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/>
California Newsreel: www.newsreel.org <http://www.newsreel.org/>
First Run/Icarus Films: www.frif.com <http://www.frif.com/>
Women Make Movies: www.wmm.com <http://www.wmm.com/>


PS on the DocuSeek site you will notice a second document, directly
underneath the survey results. These are NOT our conclusions in respect to
our relationships our customers in general or higher education in
particular, rather it is a separate article written specifically to suggest
to filmmakers, film producers, and film and media funders, that they not
plunge head-first into any of a number of different "next big thing"
internet projects currently "in development".

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
