    Please link this out to filmmakers that are looking for the right distributor.

    Hey filmmakers! Here is a list of distributors that we have been compiling. This is a list of film distributors for easy access to all filmmakers. We cannot verify all of these and do not take any responsibility for misinformation on the list of distributors below. Feature film distributors can be very hard and frustrating to get a hold of. Many film distributors to not deal with unsolicited material therefor making it nearly impossible to break through for contact them in the first place. We recommend having your lawyer contact them, or a rep. If you do not have representation then we recommend to have all of your "ducks in a row" before you contact any of these film distributors.

    Again we cannot say for sure how accurate this information of this list of distributors is, but we thought we would at least give you some information and filmmakers can make their choices.

    Do you know of any short film distributors, or is YouTube or Vimeo the best option? I'm not ready to really distribute yet, but it would be cool to know what to go for.

    Nick,
    These are all big names, will they entertain small producers?

    Yes, if you have product that they think they can sell.

    I won't presume to speak for Nick, but would like to point out that he OWNS one of those distribution companies. :)

    If you have a completed film you can contact distributors directly. But do your homework; check out the web sites and find out what types of material they handle. If they specialize in documentaries and you have a horror flick, chances are your time would not be well spent approaching them. Similarly, if their catalog exclusively lists titles with big name actors and directors and you have neither it's probably fair to assume they won't be interested.

    There's another facet to all of this, which I just learned myself, having spent the past year trying to secure distribution for my film. While there are many distribution companies of varying sizes and reputations - the above list is by no means comprehensive - there is also a tremendous amount of product out there seeking distribution.

    In the old days (when I got started) films were very expensive and much more difficult to produce. As a result, there weren't that many to choose from so distributors were more open to considering unsolicited material. The digital video revolution has made it possible for anyone (literally) to make a feature. Consequently there is a huge amount of stuff coming in, most of which is less-than stellar. Like reading spec screenplays, there simply are not enough hours in the day to watch everything, so many distributors look for other factors - such as name talent, festival awards, recommendations from trusted sources - before deciding whether to screen a title.

    They won't tell you this up front - nobody wants to burn bridges in this business - but that's where a producer's rep can be very instrumental. It's similar to the writer-agent relationship; s/he gets your foot in the door and makes sure your work is given a fair shake.

    P.S. - The above may not necessarily be true for all distributors -- I'm not qualified to make any such claim. Just passing on what I learned from my rep.

    It is comforting to me as a filmmaker to see that DiGi Distribution really is what it says. To be so un-bias to offer a complete list of distributors for filmmakers instead of closing out all competition is very comforting. It shows class and I thank you for that!

    Nice information for a newbie like myself. I am planning to film a short horror script this summer and would love to share it with the filmmaker community. Maybe, if I get positive reviews, I could use them to get a screening by a compatible distributor. Just a thought. I'll keep in touch with my progress. If time was as plentiful as sunlight, I would be very accomplished indeed.

    There is this company publishing up to date information on film distributors in different territories. Seems useful and up to date, although most of the information is available to us anyhow since we are attending the international film markets on a regular basis.. this is their website - OMITTED (By: Moderator)

    Since when is pointing out a link with worthwhile and relevant information regardless of commercial or not considered sneaky? Not the warmest welcome to the forum I have to say..

    If you would like to advertise just say so, don't have your first post on a information forum be to a website that is selling the information.
