For our Distribution Forum, deadCenter invites sales agents and distributors to meet one on one with every accepted filmmaker at the festival. Whether you have a feature with tons of celebrities or a short film you made in college, our forum provides filmmakers the opportunity to bend the ear of a distribution professional and find out how it all works.
The featured distributors at our 2016 festival included:
- Richard Matson, Orchard Films
- Linda Olszewski, ShortsTV
- Jeff Cooke, Lionsgate
DISTRIBUTION FORUM PANELS
After the meetings, the distributors sit on a panel to discuss trends in distribution and highlight any challenges brought up during the meetings.
We also invite the Oklahoma Film + Music Office to host a panel each year that benefits all of the gathered filmmakers. This year, their panel focused on crowd-source funding, featuring the producer Ann McElhinney from Gosnell, who had the most successful campaign ever on Kickstarter.
