With the rise of submission platforms, short film distribution seems easier today compared to a decade ago. However, this is not quite the case. For many filmmakers, working with professional companies that submit their films to festivals is the best option. But can a film be selected without a distributor or sales agent attached?
By giving concrete examples and sharing their expertise, this panel discussion highlights the “do it yourself” distribution strategies filmmakers Marija Apcevska (North Pole), Leonardo Martinelli (Neon Phantom) and Cristina Picchi (Unfolded) successfully used to push their short films into the festival circuit. Moderated by Talking Shorts’ Anne Gaschütz.
