Own Your Destiny: The Shopify of Film Distribution

Date TBA

For years, film creators and producers have relied on traditional distribution methods like cinemas, film festivals, and major online distributors to get their visions noticed and monetized yet only 1/3 of independent producers or less stand to recoup their investment on a film. What if the Shopify model was brought to filmmaking? This session will look at the future of independent film, festivals as an annual distributor, and the business case for self-distribution
