IFP Announces a Distribution Lab to be Run by Jon Reiss and Ted Hope

Jon Reiss and Ted Hope (our favorite authorities on the emerging models of marketing and distribution) have teamed up with IFP to start a fellowship program that will educate first-time feature filmmakers about the new distribution and marketing realities.

A March 30, 2010 article in indiewire describes IFP's plan for twenty projects (10 narratives and 10 documentaries) to receive marketing and distribution guidance from Ted Hope and Jon Reiss and IFP’s network of independent film business experts.

UCF students MUST pursue this opportunity. It is targeted at our type of filmmaking and we have a clear advantage: To promote diversity, IFP wants half of the projects to come from directors working outside the filmmaking centers of New York and Los Angeles.
