About the Event

TV Distribution - Are you considering working with a distributor but aren't sure if it is the right thing to do? What are the next steps once you have a distributor? Or just curious about the world of distribution?

In this session Rebecca Brown, Commercial Manager at BBC Studios Content Partnerships, will cover a basic run-through of the sales and distribution industry. Rebecca will discuss why a filmmaker might use a distributor, how it all works and what you can expect if one comes on board. She will also explore when to go alone and why you might choose to not work with a distributor as well as other things to consider when trying to fund a programme.

Rebecca Brown was a WFTV Mentee on the 2020 Mentoring Scheme. She has ten years' worth of experience in the industry. She is a Commercial Manager at BBC Studios Content Partnerships and manages their Unscripted slate of programmes.  She has also worked at NBC Universal acquiring programmes for their UK channels, and at BBC Public Service across factual and children's content.

Please note that this session is focused on TV distribution only and not film, so theatric releases will not be covered.
