Creating Your Distribution Timeline

Presented by Jim Browne


Filmmakers who take an active role in the distribution of their films are more likely to succeed in connecting with their core audiences. This presentation, by Argot Pictures Founder Jim Browne, will demystify the distribution process and point you in the right direction.

Browne will provide an overview of exhibitions, from film festivals to theatrical, semi-theatrical, community/impact screenings to VOD/Digital, broadcast, educational and beyond. He'll help independent filmmakers create a timeline for the life of their film and devise a plan that's sensible. You'll also explore the variety of ways that films can get exposure and have a presence in the theatrical space without incurring the costs associated with traditional theatrical.
