will outline the differences and similarities that lie between GS distribution and other distribution channels (TV, commercial theaters, direct streaming, etc.). How do distributors and theater operators work together to successfully market your film? What kind of terms do distributors and theaters expect? What services and marketing support do theaters expect distributors to provide? What are the pros and cons of distributors supplying multiple content versions, and what are the costs associated with providing them? What role do distributors play in providing ancillary educational materials, and what are the benefits of providing them? What are some high-impact, low-cost ways to market your film? This session will get to the heart of why distribution and marketing of giant screen films is a unique beast.
