Once you're on the festival circuit with your own film, as we have been, you start to think about your film's life after the festival circuit, in particular how you're going to get distribution for your film.
Got the "I'm not in Sundance this year...again" blues? Well, here's an attempt to perk you up by pointing you towards festivals that are possible - and don't require a sales agent or big name producer to get you in.
You've completed your film and you're ready to share it with the world! Your first step might be to try and embark on the festival circuit. But how does a microbudget filmmaker make the most of a festival strategy?
You can get your film up on DIY platforms like Gumroad or even up on major platforms like Amazon Prime. But how do you get people to watch your film?
Last week I talked about how you need to focus on niche audiences in order to get more bang for your buck. This week I wanted to show how to do that through Facebook.
Previously I discussed the various distribution options for Microbudget Feature films and I noted that by and large the question of distribution has been solved for filmmakers. However, the big question mark we still face is marketing.
When I announced a little while ago that our first film had gotten distribution on Amazon (and now in China!) I received some emails asking me about the "nightmare of deliverables" and what I meant by that.
Whoa! It's been a while since I posted. Lots of things have been happening in my life and since a personal assistant isn't in my budget, I had to make a choice.
