You’ve finished your film, now what?
The Northwest Film Forum (NWFF), the Film Center’s sister media arts center in Seattle, provides an array of technical and financial support to regional filmmakers, including the Start-to-Finish program. Since 1998, it has also been a film distributor, using its institutional muscle and expertise to shepherd the much-heralded film POLICE BEAT and other selected independent works into the marketplace. Having built this component of NWFF’s offerings from the ground up, Program Director Adam Sekuler knows the behind-the-scenes terrain inside and out. Learn from his insights to plan and apply realistic solutions to properly promoting and marketing your film to the largest audiences possible (increasing your chances of creating a revenue stream). Case studies will reveal how the worlds of film festivals and publicity have played out with different films and how the network of North American film organizations fits in to today’s changing theatrical landscape. There really are a myriad of workable options available out there, so don’t let the daunting challenges of distributing your own film become an afterthought. Workshop handouts include a database of contacts to help you get started.
