Distribution 27th Nov 2017 No Film School


Distribution & marketing is less predictable—but more important—than ever.

Distribution & Marketing: the life or death moment where your film finds its audience…or an early grave. You’ve all heard the horror stories: a festival hit never gets past cult-classic or, even worse, never gets seen at all once the festival’s over.
