SOUNDBITES:

1. SOUNDBITE (English) Ari Folman, director - on how the film industry is changing:

"Well in terms of films, I think that today what is sad is that we have those giant sequels, prequels, X-Men, Batman, Iron Man, Z-Man, Zombie Man, whatever, and then we have the really artistic, extreme art house movies that in 10 years time a great Jim Jarmusch movie will not play in a multiplex any more, it will play in a museum. And there are not any midrange films whatsoever,

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Robin Wright, actress - on how the film industry is changing:

"They can't afford any more to invest in films that don't make money, so it's about commerce, and that's why theoretically and realistically I understand why they are making the blockbuster movies or comic strips turned in to films or they are animated pictures or family movies, you know, more movies for children. It's what pulls people in to the box office. There was too great a loss and with loss you basically dismantle your economy, that being the entertainment industry. So we've got to boost our economy somehow, so where's the money? There's the money. Those movies make money."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Danny Huston, actor - on how the film industry is changing:

"What I find very exciting is that the three of us can make a film if we've got something to say. So with digital comes a lot of freedom. I remember my father when he was making 'Under the Volcano' saying 'Danny come here, look over there.' 'What?' 'That's a steady-cam, it's man you strap him to the camera, you don't have to lay any tracks.' And that kind of freedom takes us away from the whole circus act of making films and the amount of money that is involved. And you don't have to wait for that eternal green light to be given to you by a studio to make your film, you can practically make it on your iPhone can't you? As long as I've got something to say."
