What infrastructure does a distributor provide for filmmakers and producers? At what stage does it make sense for producers to look for a distribution partner? What are the deal-terms that potential platforms are pushing? These and many other questions related to the distribution business are being addressed in a two part podcast series, that is now available on the website of documentary business consultant Peter Hamilton.

Ludo Dufour (MD Sales & Coproductions, Off The Fence, Amsterdam) reveals insights from a distributor's perspective on the mechanics of international distribution and what to consider when aiming for global markets including a variety of different channels and platforms. The podcast is based on a presentation held by Dufour at the NEWF Congress (Nature, Environment & Wildlife Filmmakers Congress) in South Africa earlier this year. The podcasts incl. presentation slides and more information can be found here.
