Distribution : Documentary Sales Agents... anyone know any? by Paul Walker

Documentary Sales Agents... anyone know any?

We have a feature documentary we are shooting. It started out as a short but when we audience tested the teaser, feedback was so strong that we are completing this as a feature doc and wrapping end of August (probably having a completed doc ready by AFM). This has been shot in the UK and Finland and bizarrely, we have a Finnish 'personality' in there so should be able to sell it in Finland and probably the rest of Scandinavia. However, we have zero idea about documentary distribution in the US other than AFM or doc distribution in Europe so were wondering if anyone knows any sales agents we could talk to?

why did the audience think this short doc should be a feature (60 or 90minutes?)

Paul Walker

Inspiration plus shock, surprise and the other characters. And the stakes are big: Death or freedom. So, do you know any documentary sales agents?

No, but I've been to the American Film Market in Santa Monica, CA. Docs don't sell.
