Berkeley FILM Foundation presents a special seminar with distribution guru Peter Broderick
How can you increase your independence and build a sustainable career that goes far beyond one film?
Peter Broderick will begin with a presentation showing how you can develop and maximize your “own” audience and establish a strong foundation from which you can build a long-lasting filmmaking career. Using examples from across the US and around the world, he will demonstrate how filmmakers are aggregating their audiences film by film and becoming empowered by followers who champion their work.
Following the presentation, Peter will lead an interactive workshop during which he will improvise marketing and distribution strategies for filmmakers in the audience. Come prepared to pitch your project, describe your core audiences and leave conventional wisdom at the door.
