What You Need To Know About Film Distribution

Just a few short years ago, film distribution was controlled by a bunch of companies that held the keys to the marketplace.  As an independent filmmaker, if you didn’t like the film distributor’s deal, too bad – Your only other option was to give up, or self distribute.
