Kevin Smith To Self Distribute Red State

Sunday night was the big premiere for Kevin Smith’s Red State at the Sundance Film Festival. The film is getting mixed reviews but generally seems well liked, but it was what happened after the screening that is making big news.

Kevin Smith held an auction for the distribution rights immediately following the screening of Red State and there was only 1 bid; from Kevin Smith for the amount of $20.00 USD.

Smith will not only distribute the film but he’s taking the film on a road trip, in select cities from March through April.  Smith said Sunday night:

Selling my film would be like having a baby and then selling it to somebody else to raise.

Smith announced that if you can’t afford to pay for the tickets for the road trip, he will still be releasing the film theatrically October 19, 2011.
