“The movie complexes have a commercial dispute. In the jargon are the exhibition windows, showing time in the cinema and then going to streaming and television. That time is being disputed and Amazon has reduced it to three weeks. That is what is under discussion, because the big chains expected a month or month and a half of exhibition in cinemas, “he explained.
“I think that in the independent circuit this happens, that shows coexist in cinema and streaming. But hey, it’s still a commercial dispute in a market with customs of this type. There are actors who are very concentrated in the cinema market. For the distributors, the complex premiere is more profitable. independent productions and cinearte, premiere in America without any problembecause there is a fairly faithful public”, he said finally.
