TFC’s Theatrical Distribution Program, serviced by TFC offshoot Collaborative Releasing, specializes in low-cost, Hybrid-DIY theatrical releases of the best of the best from the festival circuit. Our growing list of titles includes award winners from IDFA, Sundance, Berlin, SXSW, and Tribeca Film Festivals. Most of our films’ theatrical engagements consist of over 20 bookings, and are critically acclaimed: our films average well above 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Check out our new Theatrical page.

Selling Your Film Outside the U.S., the second volume in our “Selling Your Film” case study book series, is now available for FREE in multiple digital formats! While our first book, Selling Your Film Without Selling Your Soul, focused on U.S releases and case studies, Selling Your Film Outside the U.S. takes a deep dive into digital distribution (and distribution generally) in Europe and provides several case studies of films released there. Please visit the Selling Your Film Store to get your copy.

TFC is proud to announce its new Fiscal Sponsorship Program, available to all filmmakers who have joined our team of filmmakers. Fiscal Sponsorship provides filmmakers with non-profit 501(c)(3) status for their project and enables them to secure funding from foundation, government or corporate sources, or private sources that give only to nonprofit organizations with IRS tax-exempt status.
