With distribution becoming as complex as an intricate math problem, producers are asking, “Can you really do it yourself?” Split-rights deals and digital outlets offer vast potential, but how do you determine your film’s value in a shifting marketplace? How do you plot a strategy to attract the right audience and generate the greatest revenue stream? Producers Senain Kheshgi and Alicia Van Couvering posit faux case studies aimed at industry luminaries, including Richard Abramowitz (president of Abramorama), Josh Braun (cofounder of Submarine Entertainment), Peter Broderick (Paradigm Consulting), Susan Margolin (co-president of New Video), Tom Quinn (co-president of The Weinstein Company)Tiffany Shlain (Connected), and moderator Karin Chien (producer of Circumstance) in an attempt to solve this distribution equation.
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.
