Coproduction Funding in the 21st century is one of the main methods of funding film, tv and digital projects. Exploring different types of coproduction and developing strategies for coproduction is the core of this segment.
After you make your film, how do you get it seen? Distribution! Getting distribution locally and internationally is the next step on the journey of your project. Methods and types of distribution will be discussed. HOW to get your film distributed is for the next workshop on Friday, but now we learn what distribution means and what money it can bring.
Your presenters for this webinar are Lorna Garner and Marcia Weeks.
