Film Independent Forum: Marketing & Distribution Clinic Discover Your Audience
October 22 2017

No matter the film, there’s always someone out there waiting to watch it. Word of mouth. Social media. Cross-platform release dates. Whatever the strategy, filmmakers are increasingly experimenting with nontraditional marketing and distribution methods. Hear from industry experts and filmmakers who have managed to forge their own paths. The panel will also feature on-the-spot advice given to select audience members about how to best position their films in the marketplace.

Moderator: Jon Reiss
Panelists: Josh Braun, Mercedes Cooper, Alia Quart Khan, Missy Laney

Crafting a Marketing and Distribution Plan
Film Independent Office
9911 W Pico Blvd, 11th floor Los Angeles, CA 90035
August 15 2017 - August 15 2017

Your film is finished… you’re applying to festivals… time to think about your marketing plan, right? Well, if you’re starting to think about marketing and distribution at this point, you’re too late. The best marketing plans begin long before production and continue to evolve as the project moves forward.

Film Independent is pleased to welcome distribution expert Jon Reiss who will explain the steps you must take when crafting a successful marketing and distribution plan for your indie film. Topics covered will include: setting goals early (“Is a theatrical release essential, or even realistic?”); identifying your audience early and establishing ways of connecting with them; branding your film and yourself; choosing the best strategy for your launch—festivals vs. direct to VOD; and how to ensure you can make the best film possible.
