These days not all exhibition films are made by the major Hollywood based movie studios. Independent film makers have changed the rules of film exhibition and have shown the world that the work they create is valid and worthy of attention.
Not all exhibition movies require the huge budget and star power that only major motion picture studios can provide. Audiences are increasingly willing to try out smaller movies made by up-and-coming film makers who are not associated with the big studios.
Anyone who is creating a movie will need a location to show it and may need work with another company to have it produced. In order to turn your exhibition movies into realities, you must first:
1. Obtain the proper funding from either private investors or financial backers;
2. Hire a film production company if you are not producing it on your own;
3. Collaborate with companies that provide for the exhibition of a film to the public.
Work with a producer for your exhibition filmThere are companies that will help turn your vision into a reality and help you through the entire process from the initial script to the finished product. They will work with you to make sure you have all of your needs met on time and within your budget.
Locate a film exhibition source for your film with help from a distribution companyAfter your film is completed, you will need a company that keeps on top of all film exhibition information in order to get your movie shown and help you find an audience. These companies will help distribute your film locally and worldwide to make sure it reaches as many people as possible.
Submit your movie exhibition to film festivalsFilm festivals are a great place to have your movie exhibited and reach a wide range of people. There are hundreds of film festivals all over the world that are looking for new and creative film makers, so you can find many opportunities to get your work seen. Once you have finished your first film, contact the festival operators and get your exhibition movie on their schedule.
- Talk to a variety of production companies to find the one that will work best with you.
- Submit your movie to festivals early to avoid paying higher film exhibition fees.
