The onset of new media outlets and avenues to enhance, or even replace, traditional film distribution has changed the game plan for all Indie filmmakers who feel a need to actively participate in their film’s release. Filmmakers and distributors who have paved the way share their insights and war stories, and new players at the table discuss the ever shape-shifting paradigms and trends filmmakers need to watch.

Michael Hughes – VP of Strategic Partnerships, En2Go
