On Thursday, October 19th, CJ Cinema Summit will explore Independent Distribution and Art House Films.  We have discussed tentpole releases and concert films, now our focus is on those films that have historically been the staples of the cinematic experience.  How do distributors optimize the potential of these films in a post-pandemic age?


We will be joined by Paul Dergarabedian to provide some insights from Comscore on the topic.  We will then hear from our panel: Lisa Bunnel, President of Distribution - Focus Features, Elisa Federoff, President of Distribution - Neon, Nicole Weis, VP of Distribution - IFC Films. and Sarah Timlick, Director of Sales, Distribution & Development - Elevation Pictures
