Filmmakers submit to us around 750 films and projects each year of which we can only select 10 to 15! You understand that we cannot watch everything that is proposed to us.
We also do get numerous proposals and completed documentaries that do not really fit in what we are doing. It is therefore important that you read the following carefully!
1. CHECK OUR ACQUISITION CRITERA. If you think your film is suitable, then:
2. E-MAIL SYNOPSIS
Please email a synopsis first, if possible with some background materials and filmmaker information. What we also like to know is who is already part of this (broadcasters, financiers) who has expressed interest and to which festivals has the film been submitted / accepted. Please send the synopsis to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org at the same time.
3. SEND THE FILM IF WE REQUEST IT
One of us will get back to you hopefully within 48 hrs with a response, if positive we invite you to send us a DVD or even better, upload the film to an FTP site where we can download it or watch it on-line.
AT WHAT STAGE DO WE BEGIN WORKING WITH FILMS?
We pick up films for representation at all stages, but the vast majority are either finished films, rough cut or fine cut stage. We prefer to see films before they are picture locked when possible.
