Title

Film distribution is the process through which a movie is made available for
viewing by an audience. This is normally the task of a professional film
distributor, who would determine the marketing strategy of the film, the
media by which a film is to be exhibited or made available for viewing, and
may set the release date and other matters. The film may be exhibited directly
to the public either through a movie theater or television for personal home
viewing (including DVD-Video or Blu-ray Disc, video-on-demand, download,
television programs through broadcast syndication etc.). Other ways of
distributing a film include rental or personal purchase of the film in a variety of
media and formats, such as VHS or DVD, or Internet download.

Text

While motion picture films have been around for more than a century,
film is still a relative newcomer in the pantheon of fine arts. In the
1950s, when television became widely available, industry analysts
predicted the demise of local movie theaters. Despite competition from
television's increasing technological sophistication over the 1960s and
1970s such as the development of color television and large screens,
motion picture cinemas continued. In fact with the rise of television's
predominance, film began to become more respected as an artistic
medium by contrast due the low general opinion of the quality of
average television content. In the 1980s, when the widespread
availability of inexpensive videocassette recorders enabled people to
select films for home viewing, industry analysts again wrongly predicted
the death of the local cinemas.
