Free Cinema is an experiment with two goals: 1) To introduce independent filmmakers to the ideas behind the burgeoning free-culture movement. 2) To see if applying those ideas to feature filmmaking will result in something new and interesting.There are two rules of Free Cinema:
Rule One: No money may be spent on the productionYou can talk about Free Cinema.
Make a film for free, and suddenly giving it away is a lot easier.
Rule Two: The film must be copylefted
A "copyleft" means that you let anyone copy and/or make new things from your film--as long as they promise to release anything they make from it with the same terms.
