The New World of Self Distribution for Independent Filmmakers
Times are changing, and opportunities for independent filmmakers are growing quickly! In past years, a traditional distributor was needed to get our movies into theaters, stores and on VOD. But now gatekeepers are no longer required for many platforms, and filmmakers can take control of their film's destiny. Please join us for an enlightening night of conversation with POTA founder Cindy Baer, who will discuss the new world of self-distribution options, costs, and aggregators. Our guest speaker will be Shiron Bell, Managing Director of Quiver Digital, who will talk about deliverables and answer questions about aggregation.
