Shape and Sharp to be a Shark – Call for feature films to Nordic Distribution Boost! What: A residential lab for producers and distributors of second or third time feature film directors to develop knowledge of Nordic distribution territories, and put a focus on marketing and audience outreach strategies of their film.
Where and when: Hotel Katajanokka, Helsinki (FI). 16-18 April 2018.
Expenses: Nordic Distribution Boost is free for the selected participants – travel, meals, accommodation are covered by Nordisk Film & TV Fond!
Why Nordic Distribution Boost? Statistics and our experience proof that the so called ”middle-size films” are struggling to get an audience. Often these films have good cinematic values and interesting themes, and rather new directors, but somehow the audience does not seek or find this kind of films as actively as before – or get access to them. This is especially true when the film gets distribution outside its home country.
To strengthen the chances of these films abroad, Nordisk Film & TV Fond has decided to initiate Nordic Distribution Boost! Our aim is to assist Nordic producers and distributors in identifying their audiences and developing their marketing strategies in the neighbouring countries. Five to seven films (currently in development) will be chosen to a residential Lab of two days.
