What You'll Learn

FUNDRAISING

How can I fundraise for my film?

Most filmmakers apply to the same funders like ITVS, IDA, Sundance Documentary Fund, Gucci Tribeca. Only a handful get them. We’ll teach you to expand your fundraising to include non-film grants, funding from companies, crowdfunding, and much more.

FILM FESTIVALS

How can I make the most of film festivals?

You need to have a film festival strategy and it needs to be more than ‘premiere at Sundance’. We’ll teach you how festivals can open doors to unexpected funders and committed allies who will help your film get seen across the globe.

DISTRIBUTION DEALS

How do I sell my film to a streamer?

+
-

Big streamers like Netflix and Hulu know what they are looking for and how much they’re willing to pay. We’ll reveal the truth about streamers. And we’ll also explore other powerful ways to make money with your film and get it seen.

MONEY & FANS

How do I get started with distribution?

Remember Blockbuster? And going to theaters? The ways films are released have changed. We’ll teach you new and powerful ways to release your film from virtual events and fundraisers, educational sales, PBS underwriting, and more.
