Doing It Yourself: A Handbook on Independent Film Distribution.
Written by filmmakers with five years experience as part of a cooperative for the distribution of feminist films, this handbook is designed primarily to instruct filmmakers on how to distribute their films and to assess whether self-distribution is advisable. Mainly non-theatrical use of 16mm films is discussed, with emphasis on educational institutions and libraries where students are the main audience and films are used as learning tools. Also covered are promotional and advertising routes, ways of handling costs and bookings, office set-up and procedures, and European marketing possibilities. An extensive appendix provides sample ordering instructions, a schedule of film festivals and conferences, and business forms and sample form letters. (MER)
