Selling Films Socially - a Revolution in Film Distribution

EIFF partners Distrify invite industry members to a live debate about DIY distribution

Have you made a film but can't get it into cinemas? Tried selling online? If you're looking for ways to get your film out into the world, Distrify is hosting an event to give you a boost. The debate takes place at Festivalhouse@Teviot tomorrow, Sunday 19 Jun at 4.30pm. Panelists including Chris Jones (The Guerilla Filmmakers Handbook), Arjun Catterji (Imaginox), Phil Hawkins (Director: Being Sold), and Distrify's own Peter Gerard.

To show you how it's done, the event will also include the online premiere of Being Sold - a new comedy feature film that will be made available via Distrify at the start of the event. When the switch is flipped, watch them harness the power of social media as the team begin online marketing campaigns to promote the film around the world.

Check out details of the event on the industry calendar under 'Selling Films Socially - a Revolution in Film Distribution'.

Delegates are invited to attend, and this event is free and open to the public.

Distrify looks forward to welcoming you.
