Navigating the Shark Invested Film Distribution Waters with Jerome Courshon

Today on the show we have film producer, distribution expert, and today’s “go-to” authority of how to get a film to market, Jerome Courshon. He has broken open the “exclusive club” of successful independent producers with his innovative 3-Day Program, “THE SECRETS TO DISTRIBUTION: Get Your Movie Distributed Now!”

A producer in his own right (he secured a profitable distribution deal with Warner Bros. on his very first indie movie), Courshon is called upon by many sources for his savvy. From beginning to veteran producers, as well as the press, they contact him regularly to gain access to his unparalleled expertise and invaluable knowledge.


Regarded as one of the world’s chief experts in distribution, he tracks the ever-changing film industry distribution markets to present relevant, trending and successful strategies in his lectures, classes and 3-Day Program. His ultimate goal for every filmmaker? Get your movie or documentary to the marketplace successfully.

Citing his own personal journeys of releasing films and working with distributors, Courshon highlights the many obstacles & challenges filmmakers face today — and how to overcome them. His teachings also pack powerful messages on how to stay in the game for the long haul. At the heart of every lesson on distribution is a focus on “what works and what doesn’t” in reaching your audience.

We also discuss the current Distribber disaster and how it is affecting indie filmmakers today and in the future. This is a masterclass in film distribution so buckle up and enjoy my conversation with Jerome Courshon.
