So how do you make YOUR film the success it deserves to be? How can you platform your work and profit from it too?

  • Do you have an accurate, real world and up to date sales and distribution strategy in place (based on genuine recent successes)?
  • Do you have a strategy in place that will attract investors, backers, key crew and experienced actors?
  • Are you aware of the myriad pitfalls that can kill films dead (often old ideas that are now outdated)?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 or fear getting exploited? What are the right choices and relationships for your project?
  • Do you have the relationships with the right players in the marketplace – people who you can trust and who have demonstrated how to do it?
  • VOD, PPV, Theatrical, DVD, TV, Festivals, Online… Which choice is right for you, or more likely what hybrid strategy will you adopt?

Success for your film (short, feature or documentary) isn’t rocket science…

BUT it does require focus and a desire to ‘work at it’ and NOT look to others to make success happen for you.

It’s the Wild West out there… But there’s also gold in the hills

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.

During the 2017 Summit we will investigate RECENT real world successes and failures, drill down into the experience from the coal face that industry professionals can share, and finally explore new ideas, tech, strategies and tactics from the disrupters.

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.

When, where and how much?

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 and strategies…

You will meet…

  • Hundreds of new filmmakers who can share their experiences with you and with whom you can form a new peer group
  • Filmmakers who have just done it and will share the details of their successes, failures and hard won lessons
  • Industry experts who are at the front of sales and distribution

From the horses mouth… 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.
