Filmmakers are increasingly relying on revenues from DVD sales and digital downloads, as a supplement to (or instead of) theatrical ticket sales.

Our panel of filmmakers, techies, and distributors will outline the best practices for making the most from the established DVD sales channel and the emerging digital channel.
