For tips regarding acquisitions, read an interview between Cinema Libre Studio and MovieMaker Magazine: Brick and Mortar: Why traditional distributors still matter in a major way.

We will review a film with respect to its sales and distribution potential in all media/worldwide. However, if only specific rights or territories are available, please note this in the body of your email or on the DVD. If you have already self-distributed your film in any way or sold certain rights to another company, please note that, as well.

*We do not offer advances for distribution.

We are currently looking for:

  • Feature length, social-issue fiction and documentary films
  • Feature length, politically-themed fiction and documentary films
  • Narrative films of all genres (drama, romance, horror, comedy, etc.)
  • Foreign Films

Submitted films will be screened within 30 days of receipt, after which a Cinema Libre Studio team member will contact you. Make sure you include your email when submitting the film.
