Austin Convention Center
Room 9ABC
531 E 4th St

At the same time independent filmmakers are exploiting their works in specialized theatrical and traditional distribution windows. And they are taking on more responsibility for marketing their works. This session will explore customary distribution contract terms that require new approaches and "new" contract terms that are specialized to distribution agreements in the digital age.
