Film Distribution – Where’s the Hook?

Sheri Candler, a highly esteemed film writer and consultant, wrote the following in MovieMaker Magazine: “What’s your marketing hook? If you don’t know, you have some brainstorming to do. Hooks allow an audience to immediately recognize what is interesting about your story and decide whether they want to investigate further.”
Thousands of independent films are produced each year. Your film will face fierce competition for screen time, for acceptance on the most popular digital platforms, Cable VOD, and in foreign markets. How do you find that all-important hook that will give your film an edge?
We feel we have an answer that is economical and totally transparent: our CINEMAflix DISTRIBUTION Program. Here’s why?
* We include a theatrical run in New York and/or Los Angeles. This will give your film exposure and credibility. A great start.
* We offer a well-connected publicist to promote your film. He’ll contact the film critics, write and transmit press releases, set up interviews, and compile and distribute production notes. Having a publicist working on your film is absolutely essential.
* We know how to prepare a very compelling submission package for the digital platforms (iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, Google, Hulu, and Sony), TV stations and networks (both domestic and international), and DVD wholesalers (selling to retail chains, schools, colleges, and libraries). Remember, acceptance by any of these outlets is NOT automatic.
