How Filmmakers Can Work with Brands
Branded Cinema is on the rise with more and more corporates and brands seeing film as a unique way to amplify their message. This innovative new financing structure is helping to get more short form, feature and documentary work to wider and wider audiences. Much more than product placement filmmakers can learn invaluable marketing strategies from this approach even if not working directly with a brand and gain invaluable tools on how to amplify and market their film’s core message.

This event, sees a keynote lecture from global film finance and distribution expert Brian Newman (former Head of Tribeca Institute), followed by a live mentoring workshop with three pre-selected film projects and extensive Q&A.

How Filmmakers Can Work with Brands takes place on Friday the 13th of November at RTE Cork Studios, Fr. Matthew Street, Cork.
