the distribution in festivals
the showcase of emerging directors

For many emerging filmmakers, distributing their short films is a crucial step in their career. How can they get noticed in such a vast and competitive market like the independent film industry? The answer lies in participation in film festivals around the world.

However, distribution in film festivals is not simple. In fact, only by using targeted strategies, such as careful selection of festivals, very careful planning, professional presentation and, moreover, an effective promotion plan, can the short film maximize its chances of being selected for official competitions.

Undeniably, this complex and demanding phase requires specific skills and a network of contacts within the industry. This is where the importance of a distribution company comes into play: thanks to their experience and established relationships, indeed, they can open doors that would otherwise be difficult to reach.
