Still from The Grief of Others

This special session with critically acclaimed filmmaker Patrick Wang (In the FamilyThe Grief of Others) explores a wide range of new and current strategies for filmmakers who are seeking to take a more active role in the distribution of their work. New possibilities in distribution do not just come from new technology, but also from new thinking. Drawing upon his background in economics as well as filmmaking, Wang has chosen unusual paths to successfully find an audience for his films, sometimes working alone as well as working with a range of partners in different countries. Wang will discuss his diverse experiences as well as ideas for distribution yet to be tried.
