Distribution Strategies


Options for getting documentaries released through festivals, special screenings, cinemas, broadcasters and VOD-platforms are bigger than ever. This also means that the choices creators have to make are many. Paradiddle Pictures offers workshops and seminars focusing on the many opportunities for creating the right distribution and festival strategy.

The format can be a:

  • seminar set-up
  • hands on project oriented workshop
  • tailor made program including a combination of these two elements.

During a seminar or a project based workshop, tools for distribution strategies will be shared, methods for getting film seen will be covered and approaches to windowing your release across festival, broadcast and VOD are outlined.

During the project based workshop, participants will develop a concrete distribution and festival strategy for their next documentary.

Ove Rishøj Jensen has many years of experience in providing strategies and plans for getting documentaries distributed. This includes giving lectures on festival strategies for ESODoc.

The focus on distribution strategies is also available as an individual consultation and mentorship service.
