Distribution Speed Dating

deadCenter is run by working filmmakers. And, we know how difficult and overwhelming the distribution process can be.

Whether you have a feature with tons of celebrities or a short film you made in college, this is your chance to bend the ear of a distribution professional and find out how it all works. Meetings are first come, first serve. Sign up at the venue.
