There are now well over 200 streaming platforms out there with more opening up each day. For an independent filmmaker this can become a challenging predicament. One option can be to book the film on every platform as long as there is no cost. But managing too many platforms can be time-consuming and easily lead to a nervous breakdown. 
The answer is to focus on a few of the major platforms in the two most meaningful categories: Subscription (SVOD) and Transactional (TVOD):
Subscription (SVOD): You pay a monthly fee and, in exchange, you can watch an unlimited number of films. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Sony Playstation.
Transactional (TVOD): You pay each time you click to see a film. iTunes, Google Play, Fandango Now.

Gore Vidal died five years ago. He was 86 years old. He wrote 25 novels, Broadway plays, screenplays, short stories, and countless essays. He was known for his cynical views of politics and culture. Here are a few examples:
My father had a deep and lifelong contempt for politicians in general. They tell lies, even when they don't have to.  

We are permanently the United States of Amnesia. We learn nothing because we remember nothing.

Today's public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can't read them either.

Half of the American people have never read a newspaper. Half never voted for a President. One hopes it's the same half.

A good deed never goes unpunished.

Apparently, a democracy is a place where numerous elections are held at great cost, without issues, and with interchangeable candidates.

The four most beautiful words in our common language are I TOLD YOU SO.

The United States was founded by the brightest people in the country---and we haven't seen them since.

Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.
We now have 5 major cinemas in New York City featuring classic revivals: The Film Forum, Metrograph, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, and the QUAD Cinema. However, they are bucking fierce competition from the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) cable channel and two outstanding streaming platforms featuring revivals: FilmStruck and MUBI. It's going to be very tough for these theaters to compete.
