Hello distributors! I'm a producer-director that has several short films that I've collected from my archives onto DVD and BluRay, and I need to know what the best practices are to get the most from my content. Do you guys have any advice to offer?

Do it yourself. By definition you are a small studio, so here is how they do it. Most film studios will have this set ahead of time before making a film (they make sure the niche market is interested, network with leaders in the genre, go to events and mingle, and they research where they watch films). Collecting emails is a must. Working with a theatrical distributor is expensive so go the route of DIY distribution. You don't have to get permission to distribute your film. Your audience is your business. Without an audience you have no business. I use these tools: go to www.distribber.com for digital. Go to www.tugg.com for theatrical. I use www.kunaki.com for all my DVD and drop shopping to stores. There are also wonder tools for cheap like www.vhx.tv for digital. Contact physical stores individually and go through their steps for submit ion. If there is a market for your film and you have done the upfront work to building your support for your niche movie ahead of time then success is possible. Good luck with the film! Hope it goes well.
Thanks! I've been wondering this kind of stuff for a while. I'll check out all the leads you've given me, and I'll report back.
My platform creates revenue for content owners via streaming and direct to consumer downloading. We distribute video content to wireless providers on an international basis where we actually specialize in short films. These have become more popular than longform content as studies show that viewers on mobile devices do not watch entire longform videos from start to finish.
I would love to take a look at your platform. What's a website for it?
my website is repelmusicdistribution.com however, there is more information regarding video distribution in the presentation that I have created. If you would like to inbox me your email address, I would be more than happy to send you copy of it.
