And he’s planning to introduce a “plug-and-play” solution through which American independents and filmmakers can bypass or enhance traditional bricks-and-mortar release strategies.

“The Internet affords us the reach and revenue prospects of any network or cable channel, and the sooner we recognize and rally around that fact, the sooner we’ll emerge from the debilitating funk that’s enveloped us,” he added.

Lipsky, a former exec at Miramax and IFC, oversaw Gigantic’s releases of “The Doorman” and “Year of the Fish” along with documentary “Must Read After My Death,” which opened in theaters in New York and Los Angeles and streamed day-and-date to broadband households.
