WHAT TO EXPECT

Tables (10-20): Each company will have a small table for materials and sign up. This will also include information on grants and other opportunities in addition to distribution application protocols. It will be an opportunity for our distribution day partners/sponsors to advertise their work and programs useful to our filmmaker community.

5 Minute Presentations: Each company will speak and provide a short presentation if they like on their work and programs useful to our filmmakers.

2 Discussions: We will have at least 2 discussion + Q & A sessions – one focused on the industry and another on how best to use the tools, materials and contacts presented in the fair day. How to maximize your portfolio and distribution network.

Be prepared to speak one-on-one with distributors over refreshments and snacks. Bring your ideas, questions, notes, pen and paper and a lot of business cards.

Discussion topics:

  1. How has distribution changed in the last 5-10 years and what do filmmakers need to know? What's the best way to navigate the film distribution world?
  2. Where do you start? Everything you need to know about distribution and outreach of your film from print marketing, social media campaign strategies to dealmaking with large multimillion dollar companies…
  3. Advice for filmmakers on how to carve out a niche, style, brand. Examples of filmmakers who have done this well. Being versatile vs having a signature style in the world of science filmmaking.
