Dan Shannon of ID Communications invited to speak on documentary distribution panel at Meet the Docs at EFM 2012
ID Communications is an international sales agent for specializing in indie film distribution and marketing We specialize in festival grade international documentaries and indie features for worldwide theatrical, VOD, TV, DVD and digital media channels. Our company attends on average a dozen key film markets and festivals per year, where we are active both in sales as well as looking for new quality films to represent.
Dan Shannon has also been invited to give a masterclass, on the subject of web marketing for film distribution.
In 2011, Mr Shannon published a book this year about internet marketing tactics for film distribution , “The Dotcom Frequency”. An updated 2013 version will be announced in Q2 2013.
Our special focus is films with a niche. The internet today offers unparalleled access to targetable markets, and we take pleasure in bringing our producers with films that may have a latent market online, to meet their customers.
For more information about the films we represent and the services we offer to our clients both in film distribution and digital marketing, please contact us below. Feel free to peruse our small but carefully selected film catalogue.
In our experience, many distributors drive forward by watching in the rear-view mirror. Though we are active in TV sales for our customers, we are focused on the fast changing digital landscape, as well as opportunities beyond traditional television sales.
Film distribution is changing fast, and we are moving faster. Currently the world of mobile has outstripped the internet in sheer volume of users, and iPad and other tablets are becoming a new outlet. We have partnered with ID Digital Media to bring film-based content into this new medium, for the development of mobile applications specifically suited to the needs of film marketing. We think in 2012-2013 film distribution needs a paradigm shift .
