New Frontiers in Distribution
Sponsored by Metro Orlando Film & Entertainment Commission, a division of Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission
Just when you thought it was safe to make a great movie and take it to market…
With things seemingly changing by the minute in the independent film business, where should a non-mainstream filmmaker turn to get his or her film seen and into the marketplace? Join our esteemed panel of industry veterans, including Neal Block, Head of Distribution, Magnolia Pictures; Michael Tuckman, Founder, mTuckman Media; Liz Flynn, Head of Theatrical Sales, Oscilloscope Pictures; and Jeff Deutchman, Manager of Acquisitions, IFC Films, as they discuss concepts such as art houses vs. megaplexes, digital rights, video-on-demand, Netflix, and many other strategies that are paving the way for the deals of the future. These forward thinkers will lead the way to the light at the end of the specialty distribution tunnel. Randy Finch, UCF film instructor and producer of Outside Providence and The Substance of Fire, will moderate.
This event is FREE and open to the public
