Sunday, September 23 - North Shore Towers Cinema, Queens, NY
A HUGE step forward! A crucial and very major goal has been achieved. We just signed with a sales agent, Porter Pictures, whose job it is to take a project out into the world and sell it to distributors, educational and foreign markets so it can go global.
We were approached by this company out of Beverly Hills, CA to rep the film at major markets (American Film Market in CA, and those in Berlin and Cannes), TV and online streaming. Porter found us at our screening at the San Diego Latino Film Festival. To be discovered by an agent or distributor is one of the purposes of showing at festivals. Watch this space for news that may come from what we hope is a very fruitful relationship!
May this be the start of "Undocumented"'s journey into the world, to do the good it was meant to do.
