International film distribution is often perceived as a mystical ‘smoke and mirrors’ side of the industry where back room deals are forged, leaving few points of entry for independent films which may have not gotten picked up by a major distribution outfit.
Actually if you canvas many of the mid-tier US based distributors working in foreign (for them) markets, you will quickly realize it is precisely the international market that holds the most promise to make sales. And why not? with over 120 countries in attendance at most international trade events for TV film and DVD properties, there are quite a few deals to be done if you have the right content, even if you do not have an ‘output deal’.
We have been attending these markets since the mid 90’s and would be happy to give you a quick appraisal of your project, if you are looking for international representation.
