Sushi and film distribution

A friend of mine recommended Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a fascinating film about the man who runs the only sushi restaurant in the world with three Michelin stars. It’s a good watch, even for someone like me, who knows nothing about sushi. It gives insights into what it takes to get to such heights, families, Japanese society, and even a bit on how the fish markets work.

As interesting to me, though, is Distrify. The film is available online through Distrify, who are providing a platform for filmmakers and rights owners to sell film rentals or purchases and make it easy for people to share the film online. This feels important to me – a step on from YouTube, iTunes and Vimeo and a real opportunity for film makers. I wish it every success.
