Event Details


 
Film Distribution and the Educational Market
Presented by Livia Bloom
 

Distribution of documentary films and some kinds of narrative films to schools, churches, and community organizations is too important to overlook. For certain films this may be the entire distribution plan, and titles that are incorporated into classroom use can generate years of income. Nontheatrical and Educational Distribution, presented by Icarus Films Vice President Livia Bloom on May 25, will take look at this field, what filmmakers need to know about it, and how they can access it.

Livia Bloom is a film curator and Vice President of Icarus Films, a documentary distribution firm representing work by directors including Chantal Akerman, Patricio Guzmán, Shôhei Imamura, Chris Marker, Bill Morrison and Jean Rouch. Bloom has presented cinema programs at institutions including the Film Society of Lincoln Center, the Maysles Documentary Center in Harlem and the Museum of the Moving Image. A graduate of Cornell and Columbia Universities, she currently lives with her husband in Brooklyn.

Icarus Films is a distributor of documentary films that works with independent producers from around the world to help their films find audiences. They distribute over 1500 titles to theatrical, non-theatrical, educational, home entertainment, online and television markets across North America. As well as licensing programs on DVD and Blu-ray to the educational market, they offer a subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) service focused on meeting the needs of colleges and universities for online access to documentary content.
