We handle the business affairs so that filmmakers and producers can focus on creating. New World Distribution negotiates deals for international and domestic distribution for all rights including digital, theatrical, television, home entertainment and more. We strategically roll out with your film or project while adding value to media service providers. We don’t accept every film that’s submitted to us and our evaluation is brutally honest, but then we doubt that you’d expect anything less from New World Distribution. We also arrange financing for your projects in development and can help you obtain finishing funds for films in post-production. Fill out the NWD SUBMISSION FORM below and let’s get started!
Completed Films Seeking Distribution
For completed films requiring producer’s representation for distribution, please fill in our submission form below or you can send a NTSC DVD screening copy to our office and call to make sure it was received. All submissions to be sent to our offices by postal service, FedEx, courier, or messenger. Kindly follow up with us once you think we have received your film in order to get our feedback, and discuss your goals for the film within the marketplace concerning finding and negotiating the various distribution platforms and licensing agreements, including but not limited to Theatrical, homevideo, and TV and tracking/collecting royalties for your film.
If your expectations are in line with what we think we can accomplish we will discuss what will be involved in having us distribute your film.
Once we have been engaged to be your distributor we will book a time to discuss a strategy for your film for all rights—digital, theatrical, television and home entertainment. Then we will strategically role out with your film in order to provide opportunities for executives to simultaneously screen it at the studios, mini-majors and independent international and domestic distribution companies.
Creating a sense of urgency and ‘buzz’ is something we are known for. It allows us to leverage interest from competing distribution platforms in order to ignite bidding wars. We successfully oversee, track and collect royalties and advances on behalf of the filmmaker because of our long-standing business relationships, presence and experience within the distribution landscape.
