Film distribution is changing. The traditional windowing model, whereby films open exclusively in cinemas before they are introduced to the home video market, and thereafter on television, is being undermined by new release strategies. A growing number of films are now given a day-and-date release, being simultaneously shown in cinemas and online. At the same time, the shift towards direct distribution is opening up new opportunities for filmmakers and producers, with important consequences for the status of film distributors.

This event aims to highlight the issues filmmakers, producers and distributors are about to face while adapting to the changing nature of film distribution. These issues will be considered through discussion with sales agents, distributors and newly emerging players such as content aggregators and digital providers. This event, then, provides a chance for filmmakers, industry professionals and researchers to see into the future of film distribution, and predict trends and developments.
