We all know the indie film world is filled with competition and can be a grind. Learn how to give your film a leg up on the competition from the perspective of a film critic, festival director and publicist! I've seen so many great films come through my festivals, but not get the buzz they deserved because the filmmaker didn't have the resources to cut through the clutter and competition. Making a film takes time, energy and money. Things we can't afford to waste.

    I really enjoyed the “PR For The Indie Filmmaker” course, taught by Kevin Sampson. It is very rich in content! I truly enjoyed it and learned a lot! As a film critic, film festival director, writer, producer, and director, Kevin is clearly a credible messenger. What’s better is that he delivers his knowledge in a very enthusiastic and affable way. He also makes use of great examples along the way. Upon completion of the course, I quickly began to act on many of the recommendations provided in the course and I’m confident other filmmakers will, too, find the lessons immensely valuable. I highly recommend it!

    I've been working as a director and cinematographer since finishing college in 2005, and this is by far the most comprehensive and concise information about marketing a film I've seen. It's easy to follow, largely in layman's terms, and speaks to you on an equal but well educated level. In tandem with the 1-on-1 with Kevin, that it is catered to todays market and is relevant *now* is perhaps the strongest case I can make for it. I will be recommending this to friends and producers who are long-time filmmakers, as well as newcomers who are looking for guidance on their first projects. Thank you, Kevin!
