How to get Distribution for Shorts and Other L.A. Events

Article Image

Short films usually don't land distribution deals even if they have a successful run on the festival circuit. Seed&Spark wants to change that. The crowdfunding and digital distribution platform has partnered with Wisconsin's Flyway Film Festival for a shorts competition. The submissions window runs from now until June 15. As part of the partnership, Seed&Spark will create a Flyway channel on the Seed&Spark website to stream the top five short films. From that pool, two winners will be picked for additional rewards and honors. Details are available here.
