Marketing & Distribution

Description: With the digitalization of the film and video industry and the rise of social media, distribution strategies for documentaries have changed. Traditionally, film festivals served as a launching pad for distribution. Today, in addition to film festivals, there are many other options of how projects can have impact on more than one platform. In this workshop we will look into new trends in the film distribution landscape, digital distribution platforms, cross platform thinking, first and second tier festivals, the educational market, PBS, self-distribution and distribution impact strategies.
