New model for filmmakers: Going on tour?

Recently Kevin Smith announced he will be taking his latest release "Red State" on tour, and with music companies like Jajaguwuar losing business from the music industry disaster, they are turning to filmmakers and applying old indie music methods for marketing.

In another turn eccentric actor/filmmaker/writer Crispin Glover is apparently so concerned about having his film pirated, he is taking his latest on tour so that the only way to view his work is with him in a cinema.

This begs the question if this is the new model for independent filmmakers to get their films shown, by going on tour like a musician would?
