Sponsored by Sundance’s #ARTISTSERVICES, the NEXT Waves of Distribution panel was a centerpiece event during the Sundance Institute’s first-ever NEXT WEEKEND film festival this month in Los Angeles. The panel challenged some of the most forward-thinking people in film and tech to discuss how funding, distributing, and marketing independent films is radically changing in this age of a total disruption. The group tackled such topics as how to monetize your films, how to find your audience and engage them, how to scale/who to hire as a film gathers momentum, how to deal with piracy (and is it worth fighting at all) and how to bifurcate your rights as those long, all-inclusive licensing windows become more and more a thing of the past.
