Everything, Everywhere, All At Once – The how to short film distribution
Undoubtedly, films are made to be seen and appreciated by an audience, especially at festivals. However, distribution is often considered at the end of the production of a short film. In many cases, the entire budget has been spent on production and there is almost nothing left to pay for the promotion of the film, thus causing many issues in promoting the film to its right audience. By providing concrete examples and sharing their personal experience, this panel aims to discuss the basics of short film distribution strategies with two distributors and a producer who have planned successful promotional campaigns on the festival circuit.
Panelists: Marija Milovanovic (Lemonade Films, Berlinale Generations), Franziska Sonder (Ensemble Film), Carla Vulpiani (Varicoloured, Venice Film Festival)
