Marketing and Selling Your Film
November 1 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Most producers do not know what happens to their film after they have made it. What is the difference between a distributor and a sales agent? How does a film earn money? What actually happens at the Cannes Film Festival and how can your film stand out amongst the crowd at a film festival?
In this course we will take you through the essentials of creating a marketing and distribution plan for your film. Learn how to utilise the trade press, consumer press and film festivals to turn your film (and yourself) into this year's sleeper hit.
Learn how to approach film festivals and film markets with a strong press kit that will enhance the commercial potential of your film.
Discover how your film will get sold to distributors and how to approach an international sales company with your film pitch. And if you get picked up what do the terms in your distribution contract mean? And what should you look out for?
In this evening course we will cover:
- What goes into production notes
- Film festivals explained
- The role of film markets
- What are sales companies
- What are the distribution contract essentials
- How much money you will earn from a film sale
