Seed&Spark  – the world’s only streaming and crowdfunding destination, supporting inclusive films and film-related projects with funding, audience building, and distribution –  is back at the Nitehawk Shorts Festival for a free class that helps filmmakers learn tools to help get their film out there. This year, it’s all about distribution.

Distribution is one of the most mysterious and misunderstood topics for independent creators. Join us as we break down the current landscape of distribution for independent film and TV, including the economics of different avenues to take, the right questions to ask potential partners, and what needs to be done from pre-production through post-production to set yourself up for success.
