How to get a film out there? Exploring distribution as a part of production
The Open Workshop examines distribution strategies and how they are usually inserted in –and might affect– the production process, and investigates how to expand such strategies so they better respond to the needs of artists’ films productions.
The Open Workshop brings together an international group of leading organisations in the field of artists’ film production, renown professionals and artists working with film. It provides the opportunity to discuss different modes of working, to share common concerns, and to exchange knowledge with other professionals and students working with moving image. The workshop is structured around three case studies that provide practical and concrete examples to gear the discussion between the invited speakers/respondents and the attendants. These case studies have been chosen in order to cover a wide spectrum of issues including the distribution of young artists; the possibilities of hybrid distribution across art and cinema and the complexities that can result from the involvement of multiple partners in one film.
3 Case Studies presented by: Johan Grimonprez (Artist, BE); Marie Logie (Director, Auguste Orts, BE) and Adam Pugh (Artists’ Moving Image Project Manager, Independent Cinema Office, GB)
Guest Respondents: Benjamin Cook (Director, LUX, GB); Peter Krüger (Director, Inti Films, BE); Olivier Marboeuf (Curator, Producer and Distributor, Khiasma and Spectre Productions, FR); Joyce Palmers (Media desk Flanders, BE); Gudrun Heymans (Culture Desk Flanders, BE); Rolf Quaghebeur (Director, Argos, BE) and Katrien Reist (Coordinator, Jubilee, BE), among others.
Moderated by: María Palacios Cruz (Deputy Director, LUX, GB)
