Workshop: Indie Film Marketing On A Shoestring

Wednesday, December 16, 2009, 1-5 p.m.

In today’s rapidly changing film world, finding and engaging each film’s audience online and offline is imperative. Gone are the days when filmmakers could depend on a studio to do their marketing for them. Filmmakers are true artists, sometimes getting lost in their artistic vision and forgetting to save time, money and energy for reaching and building their audience. This workshop will give attendees the basic tools needed to plan and execute a DIY film marketing campaign from the ground up using social media, new media, content generation and offline integration.
