The 2017 Indie Film Distribution Summit
How to get your film sold and distributed in the new, dynamic and evolving marketplace.
It’s no longer enough to simply make a great film in order to get seen.
We all know this yet are we really doing all we can to find success for our work right from the get go?
We are living through a technological and cultural evolution / revolution that has caused a seismic shift in the way audiences watch film and TV.
It’s an exciting time, but also one of great uncertainty.
The Indie Film Distribution Summit is for filmmakers and established industry professionals who want to engage in a new, vibrant and successful industry in 2017 and beyond.
To get their work seen, to make money, to platform their talent and to move onto the next project quickly.
Distribution remains the elusive final step to success that we all need, no matter what sector of the film and TV business we work in...
Sharing new ideas, strategies as well as examining both recent proven successes (and failures) can only help us all flourish during this seismic shift in the creative industries brought about by technology.
Join the industry leaders and filmmakers as they candidly illuminate the path to successful distribution in 2017.
So how do you make YOUR film the success it deserves to be? How can you profitably platform your work?
The answers are often simple and boil down to learning the answers and mastering these skills:
- Do you have an accurate, real world and up to date strategy in place?
- Are you aware of the myriad pitfalls that can kill films dead (often old ideas that are now outdated)?
- Do you lack experience in sales and fear getting exploited?
- Do you have the relationships with the right players in the marketplace?
During the two-day ‘locked doors’ event, you will hear the honest and hard won truths from experts and players in the arena...
Be they producers who have just run the gauntlet, expert analysts or successful professionals in specific disciplines or areas (think sales agents, artwork designers, trailer editors, domestic distributors, TV acquisitions executives).
Don’t fall at the final hurdle. Spend two days getting inspired, enlightened and educated… And leave with a plan for success.
The Indie Film Summit is founded by filmmaker, author and CEO of The London Screenwriters' Festival, Chris Jones as part of an ongoing drive to help filmmakers find success, however they define it.
