Info Session: Distribution with FILMCO

For filmmakers, securing distribution for their films is a wonderful achievement that can help to further their projects.
Producers must think about their distribution plan and strategy in the early stages of their films. But in today’s world with the continuous birth of new technologies, they must also become lifelong learners concerning new and emerging distribution avenues.
