National Video Resources just published an excellent 12 page guide to using
the internet for marketing independent films and videos. It is entitled
"Independents in Cyberspace" by Peter Broderick. It is Issue #18; Spring
1996. It has sections on "The Rise of the WWW," "The Future of Cyberspace,"

"Innovative Models on the Web," "The Forseeable Future," "Film Sites on the
WWW" and bits on the WWW sites of Noodlehead Network, California Newsreel,
Documentary Educational Resources, Bullfrog Films PBS, Gary Handyman: A
Resource for Distributors on the Net. Unfortunately it missed DSR's African

Cinema WWW site in its listings.

This is an excellent guide for anyone thinking of setting up a WWW site.
