DOC DISTRIBUTION 101
with Julian Carrington, Distribution Manager, Hot Docs
The distribution workshop will equip filmmakers with the tools they require to develop distribution strategies for their projects, helping them to identify key audience segments, hone their marketing messaging, better understand the roles that festivals, sales agents, and distributors play in bringing films to the marketplace, and what to expect from each of these partnerships.
STRATEGIES FOR BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE CAREER
with Stephanie McArthur, Senior Industry Programs Manager, Hot Docs
Documentary filmmaking is a métier; a career that one should in fact sustain a livelihood from. Evolving industry changes have made that more difficult. Core skill building, diversifying talents and strategic planning are at the heart of this workshop. Participating filmmakers do skill assessments, identify areas of growth and self-prescribe action plans to move their professional goals forward.
