Today is a new beginning for the United States of America. President Barack Obama has been sworn into office and will be taking on the hefty task of righting the course of America's future. It has been a long journey for both Obama and America to reach this day. And the journey before them will be no shorter.
We have a lot of work to do to help strengthen the economy, improve foreign relations, bring our soldiers home, and address the health care and energy crises and more. Keep track of our country's progress at President Barack Obama's White House Web site.
Just as Obama and Americans address these challenges, independent filmmakers will be shouldering their own transformation. Change needs to be the mantra, not just in American politics, but filmmaking as well.
Martin Luther King's dream became real today. We have our first African American president. Let's not be left behind indie filmmakers. Let our dreams of a thriving industry with real channels of distribution and support be created. Let's do our part in realizing our dreams and a strong future for independent filmmaking!
