Masterclass: The Role of the Sales Agent

You’re thinking of making a film which you’re sure can become a huge hit! But you realise you have no idea how to get your film in front of audiences (who aren’t made up of your family and friends)! Enter the sales agent – the person who will work with you to promote and build the visibility of your film to get your film sold to distributors. In this presentation, participants will learn about the key roles of the sales agent; why the film festival circuit is so important for independent films; as well as the essential promotional materials you should be thinking about to shore up your film’s chances of finding distribution.
