Electronic Film Market Online, Inc. (d/b/a eFilm Market Online), with a URL of www.efilmonline.com, the Internet marketplace for worldwide buyers and sellers to search and market feature motion pictures, short films, and screenplays, announced today that its President, Oliver Robins was a conference panelist at the 2004 International Festival of Short Films in Palm Springs, California. Over 300 films from 29 countries were presented on three screens for seven days, August 29 ÂÂ September 5, 2004.
At the panel titled, ÂÂHow To Market Your ShortÂÂ, Robins, along with a group of invited guests, discussed how short filmmakers can spotlight their films after attending the film festivals. The panelists were in agreement that filmmakers must market their short films long after the festivals conclude to garner financing and support for their next production.
Among the promotional methods discussed to spotlight a film was to maintain an on-going Internet presence after a short subject completes its run on the film festival circuit. A concern addressed by attendee was how would they direct potential web viewers of their film to their website.
In response to this important issue, Robins shared with the audience: ÂÂSince eFilm Market is an online worldwide film market, itÂÂs easy for filmmakers to gain access to their internet audience by listing and streaming their films at the Site. We have created a hub for all buyers and sellers of film entertainment to gatherÂÂ.
Another question asked by an attendee: ÂÂIs it possible to sell my short filmÂÂ. The panelists discussed that there are worldwide distributors looking for short film entertainment. eFilm Market Online addresses this question as it provides a market for worldwide buyers and sellers. Filmmakers and their representatives can upload all pertinent information to sell their film titles in a couple of minutes without having any advanced computer knowledge. And likewise, potential buyers, with a few key strokes, can preview all of the same information that they would find at an offline market, and bid for a film’s rights without ever leaving their chair.
