We want filmmakers to fully realise the potential of their hard work in sales and distribution as it’s good for everyone.

Like you I am a filmmaker. I love imagining, writing, shooting, directing, editing, effects, sound, music…and of course the premiere.

But then… Sales and distribution. Uh oh. Very few of us get excited about this all important final step. Yet it’s this step that leads to the next bigger project.

Over the decades I have made features, Oscar shortlisted shorts as well as more innovative crowd created films. For me, sales and distribution remains the final hurdle. I don’t know about you but I MUST make a return on my films as without it, I cannot sustain and grow.

And from experience, the first question any investor in my next film will ask is, ‘tell me what happened to your other films?’ We all need a killer comeback on that question. Not only investors, but crew want to see their work ‘out there’ in a very real way too. And actors want your film to help platform their talent, which means distribution also. Everyone wants to see it succeed BIG.

That’s why I have pushed to make this event happen and keep the costs right down.

I want EVERYONE to come and share in the knowledge and experience so that collectively we can elevate our work. I want the emerging film industry of today, of which YOU and ME are already a part of, to truly flourish.

We owe it to ourselves and to everyone involved in our films – be they shorts, features or docs – to get the work out there, to monetise them, to succeed… so we can all do it again. And sales and distribution remains the final hurdle.

Join me and around 30 industry experts for a transformative, challenging, inspiring, mind blowing, energising and future looking weekend and let’s figure it out together so that everyone wins.
