Raw Shorts, the programme of short courses from the BFI, is running a one-day course on how to get your film promoted and distributed on Saturday January 17th 2015. The course is for 15- to 25-year-olds only and tickets are £6 or £10 for two if you bring a friend. Tickets go on sale online from Tuesday 9th December at 11am.
The course looks beyond the completion of your short film and focuses on finding your audience. Industry producers, festival directors, film distributors, and film marketers will discuss the best way to get your short film promoted and seen by others during an onstage Q&A.
This will be followed by a master class to help you develop a marketing package and distribution strategy for your film. At the end of the day, there will be an informal networking session with industry experts and your fellow filmmakers.
