WOODS HOLE FILM FESTIVAL AND MONTEREY MEDIA PARTNER OFFERING FESTIVAL WINNERS A "FIRST LOOK" AT DISTRIBUTION
Los Angeles, CA (June 4, 2014) The Woods Hole Film Festival (WHFF) and monterey media (monterey) team up to launch a new partnership providing films in competition at WHFF the opportunity to receive "First-Look" consideration by indie distributor monterey.
The partnership takes a next level look for a film festival completion whereby the WHFF winning filmmaker(s) will receive a first and valued consideration of their film's distribution viability by monterey media, a respected member of the indie and art house film distribution network.
monterey will offer each filmmaker face to face feedback with the company's sales, marketing, publicity and technology staff where they will receive a constructive input about their film. This strategic input will be geared toward the learning process or distribution process, whichever is applicable. monterey may pursue a distribution deal with the film(s) it reviews, adding them to the award-winning film line up in the monterey library for distribution in the US & Canada.
"With more than 30 years as a distributor of quality films, many of which have been shown at the festival, monterey was a logical choice," says Judy Laster, the festival's founder and executive director.
About the Woods Hole Film Festival
The village of Woods Hole is perhaps best known as the point of departure for vacationers heading to Martha's Vineyard, not to mention scientists heading out to do research at sea. Each year during the last week in July and the first week in August, however, the community becomes a major destination for filmmakers and film lovers alike during the Woods Hole Film Festival, which at 23 years old is the oldest film festival on the Cape and Islands and one of the longest running festivals in New England. This year's eight-day festival runs Saturday to Saturday, July 26-August 2. The Woods Hole Film Festival, which receives submissions from around the world, showcases independent film with a special emphasis on the work of emerging filmmakers and on screening films that are relevant to or enhance the quality of life on Cape Cod.
