Producer’s Toolkit 2014


Film Independent is pleased to announce our annual Producer’s Toolkit, which offers three stand-alone classes that will help you learn – or brush up on – the fundamental skills every producer needs in order to budget, finance and release an independent feature film.

Demystifying (DIY)stribution

Date: Saturday & Sunday, June 28 & 29
Time: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Producers Jennifer Dubin and Cora Olson (Good Dick, The Perfect Family, I Am I) break down the elements of a 360 degree hybrid distribution strategy.

The class will cover the basics; from festivals to theatrical, windowing your release, marketing, splitting rights, delivery, recouping, residuals and more. You’ll learn how to get your movie out into the world, identify your project’s core audiences, and develop strategies to access them. Learn how to leverage traditional publicity while working social media networks to expand the reach of your marketing.

We’ll drill down on the established and emerging platforms where you can exploit your film, and how to keep them separate to maximize revenue back to you. This is an empowering and essential skill set for today’s independent filmmaker — and a toolkit you’ll want to access for all your projects past, present and future.
