If you want to successfully release your film both domestically and internationally, the Indie Film Community can connect you with reliable and trustworthy distributors in many regions of the world. And we can help you with negotiating your distribution deal and delivering your movie.
You made a great movie but don’t assume that anyone will ever know about it. You need to make them aware of it by doing a robust marketing campaign.
First, identifying your core or niche audience lays the groundwork for effective strategies. Next, building awareness within this audience is essential for growth and loyalty. Leveraging social media's power amplifies your impact, and executing targeted campaigns expands your reach. Lastly, mastering direct marketing creates a direct audience connection, empowering you to navigate the filmmaking landscape confidently and purposefully. Marketing is the key to success.
The best time to do a D&M plan is at the idea or script phase. If you map out your marketing strategy at the idea or script phase, then you will be able to build marketable elements into your movie that will help connect to your target audience.
If you want to release your short film and try to make money with it then YES, you will need a D&M plan. We charge the same fee for all D&M plans, shorts or features. Note: It is the same amount of work to do a proper D&M plan for a short film as it is for a feature.
You likely spent (or will spend) tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in making your movie. $3,875 for a comprehensive D&M plan is the best investment that you can make in giving yourself the best chance of getting an audience, viewership, and ultimately make money with your movie.

This is the most commonly asked question. A Distributor will NOT do marketing for your movie; they will merely put your movie onto streaming platforms. For example: Suppose that they put your movie onto an AVOD platform like TUBI. Your movie will be one of 100,000 other movies & TV shows on that platform. How will the viewing audience find your movie in the vast sea of 100,000? They likely won’t; unless you do some marketing to create audience awareness. Your Distributor will NOT do marketing for your movie; you will have to do the marketing yourself. A D&M plan is your marketing strategy. You will absolutely need it!
You should find an additional source of funding for Marketing; otherwise, all of your hard work and expense in making the movie will go to waste if you don’t get your movie properly distributed and marketed.
NO, we do not guarantee the success of any movie. Much of the success of a movie depends on how good the movie is. But we do assure that you will have a much better chance of success with a D&M plan.
Yes, it will give you a roadmap on exactly what to do; how to do it; and how much to spend. Obviously, it’s up to you whether or not you follow every recommendation in the plan. And by the way, remember that you will need to have funds available to do marketing expenditures.
If you don’t want to execute the plan yourself, our team can help you. We will charge you fair fees for our time and services; those fees are outlined in the plan.
The film business is super high risk, and many indie films lose money. With a D&M plan you will have a 5x better chance of making money with your movie, but there are no guarantees.
