Social media, streaming portals and video platforms…through the internet the possibilities of film distribution have increased significantly. But which ways are available to independent documentary filmmakers? Which new ideas and which networks make sense?
We will discuss this together with Andreas Wildfang, former independent cinema operator and co-founder of the streaming platform RealEyz.de, Peter Ohlendorf, independent documentary filmmaker (among others from “Blut muss fliessen – Undercover unter Nazis), who wants a Netflix for leftist documentaries, Jochen Hick, independent filmmaker with a focus on queer themes, who publishes his films for a wider audience and Susanne Dzeik, independent filmmaker (e.g. from Cloud Making Machine) and board member Berlin/Brandenburg of AG DOK, Germany’s largest film association.
