Film Marketing & Exhibition Services

Venue Search & Acquisition, $150 – $5,000  Contact Me

I know which venues can accommodate your film screening, including non-traditional venues such as bars, museums and libraries. If you just need services for acquiring a venue, we can discuss your needs and I can provide a list, contact and floorplan for you. If you need to reserve the venue for a specific date, I can also work with you to confirm the date and location. You receive a detailed report of the venues, contact number, loading/unloading areas, parking information, etc. Fees are higher if you want me to lock in the date and reserve it. Confirming a venue requires payment in full upon reservation.

Film Packages for Organizations & Venues

Your company, organization, museum or library may be stuck in a rut and looking for a turnkey exhibit or showcase to encourage newer or younger audiences. I have a collection of independent, emerging films and a number of professional contacts to enhance your current/future programming.

Payments for speakers, panelists and artists are made directly to them by your organization, while payments for curatorial services, equipment (if needed) and marketing are paid directly to me. As a consultant, I facilitate and coordinate the event. The events are meant to highlight your group or facility, so your objective should be to use as many on-site resources as possible to underscore what your organization/venue has to offer the public.

Also, your venue/organization assumes all liability and are encouraged to have a Certificate of Liability on file before the event.
