Newsflash! Upcoming Workshops in DC and the Big Apple!!

Newsflash! Want to sell your film to academic institutions but don’t quite know where to begin? On March 28th I’ll be giving a workshop at Dos in Progress in Silver Spring, Md, and on April 3rd, in New York City. See below for details. At both events, we’ll have a chance to discuss the ins and outs of Academic DIY, and you’ll be invited to share their own experiences, questions, and concerns.

Naturally, there’ll be lots of time for schmoozing and networking, and as an added bonus, producer and successful DIY distributor Mitch Teplitsky will be joining me onstage in New York. Mitch has successfully distributed his own doc Soy Andina, and has had particular success in setting up lucrative campus screenings, usually where the big money is. Can’t wait to hear what he has to say.

Silver Spring, MD
March 28th – 6:30-8:30pm

New York City

  • Crafting your strategy, distribution plan, and goals
  • Identifying the market: Who’s going to buy your film? K-12, higher ed, public libraries, etc.
  • Websites, marketing and sales messages you need for educational buyers

  • Screenings with filmmaker visits and stipends
  • New VOD options for academics
