Aside from the profound personal artistic satisfaction that is derived from completing a motion picture, the primary objective of any filmmaker is to get her film in front of an audience. This can be done in several different ways, all of which require patience, tenacity, and, in some cases, legal assistance. Marketing and distributing a film are part of a filmmaker's job. Film festivals, independent distribution, and studio distribution and marketing deals are yet another big part of the filmmaking game. With a bit of luck, you're sure to be a winner.
