Now what?

In festival’s wake, indie film struggles for success in Durango
A modest crowd awaits the showing of the Academy Award nominated “A Royal Affair” Feb. 23 at The Back Space Theatre. Durango Film 2013 had its last day Sunday, but for the other 51 weeks of the year, maintaining a robust independent film scene in Durango is a financial challenge.
Carol Hotchkiss admits moviegoers to Free Movie Night on Feb. 27 at the Gaslight Cinema.
Matthias Schoenaerts plays a single father who takes up with a killer whale trainer (Marion Cotillard) after an accident confines her to a wheelchair in “Rust and Bone.” It will be Wednesday’s featured Hump Day Movie at Durango Stadium 9.
Michael Hotchkiss of The Back Space Theatre said attendance for the 3 p.m. Feb. 23 showing of the Danish film, “A Royal Affair,” was only about half the theater’s capacity of 50 or so. At right are Alan and Grace Saltzstein of Pagosa Springs.
