Film – Self-Distribution

Met Film has launched Met Film Distribution, which will work with independent film-makers who want to self-distribute their films.
The first project for the new distribution outfit will be Heavy Load, also a Met Film production, a documentary about a punk band with disabilities.
The co-production with the BBC, IFC and ITVS, which won the audience award at Britdoc, is directed by Jerry Rothwell and produced by Met Film’s Al Morrow and Jonny Persey.
Luke Montagu, CEO of Met Film, said: “We firmly believe that there are commercial opportunities for producers to distribute films themselves using Internet marketing and distribution but we know that most producers do not have these skills and have set up Met Film Distribution to help. I would encourage producers raising finance for niche films to include self-distribution costs in the budget so that they can guarantee a release.”
