Secret is Out! Distributors Reveal Their Numbers

Saturday, March 14
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 17B
Austin Convention Center


What are the components for a successful Home Video distribution release? What titles work best for us in the DVD and VOD marketplace? What sort of deliverables and costs can you expect from a Netflix or iTunes sale? What are unit and return numbers like from Walmart and Redbox? We are here to let filmmakers know the deep discussions and methods we go through after acquiring a title and most importantly let the audience in on our most terrifying question, how much money can my movie make?
