Independent Short Film Distribution Workshop

What do distributors do? Workshop hosts will discuss how independent film distributors operate and what they can offer artists. Tips for self-distribution and maximizing your short film’s potential will be discussed along with several case studies of successful films. The workshop is designed for emerging to mid-career filmmakers working in the independent media arts model.

Details of the 2019 Distribution Initiative will be announced in May.

The Independent Short Film Distribution Workshop is open to filmmakers whose work is screening at the festival. Additional spaces may be available to HIFF alumni and the public subject to availability. If you would like to inquire about availability, please email Gianna at
