indieWIRE is reporting that indie filmmakers are saying that Netflix isn’t re-upping their deals.
Netflix set down this path when it let Criterion get away from them and head to Hulu.
The mythology is that Netflix has or will make content choices, but they are all branding choices. I question the choice of focusing on television and EPIX as they sole studio content play in streaming,
The question in the marketplace is who will step up. SnagFilms, which owns indieWIRE, seems to want to own the documentary space. But are they/will they spend to own that space and put everyone else to the side? They should.
