Sunscreen Film Festival and Indyoh Inc join forces to launch the first ever film market in conjunction with the Sunscreen Film Festival!
Filmmakers now have a chance to woo distributors and sales agents, just like at the major film markets around the world. Set up shop at one of 18 exclusive showroom tables, dazzle buyers and acquisitions representatives with your promotional material, show off your film or trailer and lock in a distribution with vetted agencies to get your film in front of people and a return on your investment in front of you.
Booking a table for the day includes a full day access to the film festival and other panels, including the exclusive Film Market Survival and Distribution panel with some of the industry’s leading experts, agents and distributors.
