Seminar: Outreach & Distribution Strategies
22 September 2016 — Distribution of documentaries has developed with a wealth of great new opportunities during the last decade. Cinema on demand, crowd funding, OTT operators, VOD, educational cinema release, and many other options are in play, when brining your next documentary to different target groups. However, the many new opportunities also bring an increased complexity to making effective launch strategies and carrying out distribution plans. During this two-hour seminar you will be introduced to a method for your next distribution strategy and see examples of good launches of recent successful documentaries. You will get inspired and be empowered to make better plans for the release of your next film.
Individual Meetings and Consultation
23 September (09:00 - 12:00) — Participants: 6-8 production teams
