will these films ever be released?

so, it's hard to find funding to start a project, it's hard to get it into production, but even if filming is finished and post is underway it still doesn't mean it will get finished, survive possible legal issues and see the light of the day...and even if a turmoiled project gets to some festivals, there is no guarantee it will be shown to anybody after that... is it just me or is the film industry has gotten so much more frustrating in the last 3-4 years? even for respected masters. I won't even menton Scorsese's Silence here, because they killed it in such an ugly way... "Independent" producers and distributors kind of made better names for themselves in 2000s (thank you, Weinsteins and what is her name who "saved" some famous projects) only to destroy any trust for them in the beginnig of the second decade (thank you, guys behind the Silence scandal and distribs who want to buy great movies for only under 2mln).

We need more platforms like Kickstarter and more filmmakers going for crowdfunding. There will always be enough fans to start and finish many projects for our favorite authors. Crowdfunding and independent online distribution is the only way out of this dark tunnel of current filmmaking process which is getting even darker because of this thickest filter of intermediaries between authors and their audiences

ok this one is the furthest from release, it is still in pre-production limbo, but there is a hope that a huge number of the author's fans and admirers will convince producers to jump on board, or maybe kickstarter could help Mr. Kaufman once again?
