Film Marketing Plan

Film Marketing Plan

You now hold a card that Hollywood doesn’t have, your own fanbase. With a Film Marketing Plan you can now market directly to film audiences at the fraction of traditional Hollywood marketing budgets.

35 to 50 thousand films are being made each year, but only 600 get onto the film festival circuit. You need a tight group of fans that will support you from pre-production to release. But how do you do that, how can you get people excited about your film while it is still in development?

For instance Sundance only screens about 200 films, so your chances are slim without a following to be accepted.

Why are you making a film?

Let’s be straight, do you have the balls to devote the next couple of years to make your vision a reality?

Are you hoping to show your film on theatrical screen or a Youtube release?
You need to work out if you have a subject that will interest the largest audience.

There are reasons people make films, and we need to keep that in mind as we go forward with outlining your marketing plan.

Define your Film Marketing Goals

Do you want to make lots of money? You obviously already surrounded by investors with deep pockets.
You want a wide audience to get awards and fame
You want to launch your career to prepare for your next film
You want to change the world with an aspiring story

Depending on what you chose, we are going to refine a message and broadcast to your excited fans.

But successful brands like Coke always do advertising in regional languages featuring local film stars . That should be done in the case of Hollywood movies marketing too."

Movies have to marketed to different audiences just like Coca Cola does for each territory.
