International Documentary Sales: Navigating the Global Marketplace

The international market remains underaccessed by most U.S. documentary filmmakers. A group of international sales agents discuss their role in distributing your doc in territories abroad, issues to consider regarding international festivals and markets, and effective strategies to secure foreign broadcast or theatrical deals. Debra Zimmerman, Women Make Movies, will moderate a discussion with Heino Deckert, Deckert Distribution; Mette Hoffmann Meyer, TV2 Denmark; Jan Rofekamp, Films Transit; and Annie Roney, Ro’co Films International.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
