With filmmakers and producers exploring new models of distribution and challenging traditional notions of how to build an audience for their films, this Film Hub Scotland panel explores the impact on cinemas, festivals, exhibitors and audiences. What opportunities are emerging as the gap between filmmakers and cinemas is reduced? What are the issues faced by exhibitors working with DIY distributors? How can the traditional hierarchical distribution system be circumvented to benefit filmmakers and exhibitors alike? Come and hear from filmmakers, exhibitors and others working in this new paradigm, and join the conversation to share your views and experience.
