While positive buzz out of film festivals should pique the interest of most cinephiles, it can also be a frustrating experience. In some cases, certain films won’t be seen for months or years, if ever, and when they do finally get released, it can be a small run.

Fox Searchlight will be releasing Steve McQueen‘s 12 Years a Slave (our review) in just a couple of weeks, on October 18th, and today they’ve revealed their precise roll-out plans.
