PROJECT AND FILM MARKETING

Venue : Industry (la Mobilière) – Open Space

Accessibility : All accredited professionals welcome

Duration : until 18:00

It is never too early for time-stretched producers to start thinking about marketing their projects. Yet these decisions are usually made at the very last moment and under great pressure, leading to missed opportunities. Through a series of case studies, we will illustrate the way marketing can impact a project during its di erent stages: From development throughout production to delivery and distribution. A comprehensive list of examples will serve as checkpoints along the path of adding value to your film in order for it to reach its maximum potential and its ultimate goal: The audience. Because, ultimately, marketing is really just about sharing our passion and love for cinema.
