About the Book:

The various overseas film markets, especially Europe and parts of Asia, have always been financially important outlets for Independent films, but never more than they are now. The current worldwide hunger for Independent movies seems insatiable, and foreign sales are an indispensable economic element of almost every Independent film, large or small. In fact, some Independent movies that fail to play well to the US audience are able to recoup their expenses and show respectable profits purely on the strength of overseas audiences.

Marketing and Selling Your Film Around the World guides independent producers, both seasoned professionals and first-timers, through the business practices of international sales agents, distributors, and exhibitors. It includes essential information and advice on such subjects as securing a sales agent, providing agents and distributors with necessary promotional materials, working the film markets and festivals, and understanding the audience demographics and the industry business practices peculiar to specific territories.
