This session addresses the challenges and opportunities for film distribution within the Middle East and beyond. Given changes in distribution practices, most notably the rise of on-demand digital platforms like iTunes and Netflix, what strategies are producers and distributors adopting to get their films in front of audiences? What makes for a successful model of distribution and how are traditional models being rethought in the digital age? How can films made in or about the region find success in both regional markets and overseas?
