Indie Film Distributors
Part VI - Proving Profitability
Indie film distributors look for one thing only when they evaluate Indie Films.
"Will this film be profitable for us?"
To evaluate this, they look at your film, the size of the target audience, how your film compares to previously successful similar films, and in the end, it comes down to whether they think they can sucessfully get your film screened at Exhibitors (movie theaters).
For a better understanding of how the film money cycle is broken down, from production through dvd sales, please see the FilmProposals and Financial Manual.
