Doc Clinic #6: Delivery, Distribution and Exhibition
GET YOUR DOCUMENTARY SEEN BY THE WORLD
Join us for Doc Clinic #6 on Saturday 28 September.
Doc Clinics are a great way to get more guidance, insight and knowledge through in-depth panel discussions with experienced film professionals. Doc Clinics are supported by the NZ Film Commission.
You've finished your shoot and you're just about to finish post-production, but finishing the film is only the first step in the process. A good producer knows that a good film is nothing without an audience. Doc Clinic #6 will show you how to find the right audience at the right time.
Topics for discussion will include:
-What are deliverables and what should you know in advance?
-How do you find a distributor, or do you self-distribute?
-Do you appoint a sales agent, and what's the difference between a sales agent and a distributor?
-What does a typical distribution agreement look like, and what are some key things to look out for
when negotiating a deal?
-Which territories will best be suited to your film and which festivals should you focus on and why?
-How is the world of Netflix and VOD changing distribution and would it be better for you to release online or theatrical?
-How does distribution strategy differ for documentary from fiction/drama?
