This is a comprehensive workshop to help you navigate the best distribution path for any genre or length of film.

You might think with all of the new digital platforms out there now, it’s easier to get your film distributed. Actually, it’s just gotten more complicated. The good news is, there is a lot of opportunity to reach your audience and to keep more revenue. But you have to understand the new system and make the right choices for you and your project. This content-packed workshop will give you not only a comprehensive overview of all of those choices, but will also give you concrete steps to paving a path of success. 

HOW TO SELL YOUR FILM will also give you a deep understanding of current film distribution from both sides of the aisle – from the buyer's perspective, as well as the filmmaker's.
- Learn current trends, key strategies and important players in the film distribution field right now.
- Get clear, detailed information and action steps on how you can maximize your success, in both reaching the most eyeballs, and in bringing in the most revenue.
- No matter what length, genre or stage of production, implementing the content of this workshop could be a game-changer for your film!
