Please let me know who’s missing in the comments below.
Please add FilmWorks Entertainment to your documentary distribution list. We are always on the look out for good docs and release both domestically & internationally across all platforms.
There is very good European on-line documentary distribution Doc Alliance films having selected films from 5 most important European doc festivals: http://dafilms.com/
This list is great!!!!
Any chance of an update though? This market is changing so rapidly…
An update would be good!
TVF International is definitely missing!
I would recommend Yekra.com for Documentary filmmakers. They are a distribution company that works with your film to build a custom online release strategy while allowing you to keep your film rights completely to yourself, and is financially transparent. Their first release was on 11/11/11 and with their attention to detail and know-how they were able to generate 12 million views and garner an entire movement for the film. Check out Yekra for a new wave of legitimate independent distribution.
