Individual Panel Ticket $30, plus fee

The Marketing & Distributing Independent Films panel is a lively discussion by a panel of successful producers' reps, publicists, sales agents, critics, and distributors.  They reveal how they work with filmmakers and festivals, and provide specific advice on creating a strategy to build a buzz and maximize your chances of selling your film.  This panel will teach filmmakers how to launch a film—from marketing materials, ad agencies, and guerilla tactics to getting press attention, evaluating buyers, and taking the next step when their films did not sell at a festival. How to use internet­based blogs, social networking sites and buddy lists to build an audience.
