Occasionally I hear from filmmaker's asking about how to get their
films distributed. I've heard from three in the past month. I always
suggest festivals as one of the best ways to get noticed and I give
them the names of the distributors I use but I really don't know how a
lot of titles make their way to distributors. If one or more of you
are willing to lend some advice for these up-and-comers it would be
greatly appreciated.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
