Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival To Host Film Distribution Seminar With Paige K. Davis
Davis oversees the acquisition and marketing of independent genre feature films on DVD and VOD (Video on Demand) for Alternative Cinema. The company has several imprints, including Camp Motion Pictures, Independent Entertainment, Bloody Earth Films, and Seduction Cinema. Davis oversaw the releases of Snow Shark: Ancient Snow Beast, which it placed in Family Video, Wal-Mart Canada and Redbox Canada, and Crimson: the Motion Picture, which it placed in Best Buy. AC has acquired Sam Qualiana’s latest film, The Legend of Six Fingers. The films mentioned above share something in common: they were made on shoestring budgets in the Buffalo-Niagara region.
“I’ve worked with Paige since 2004, when Alternative Cinema released my film Slime City on DVD,” says Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival co-founder Gregory Lamberson. “Her knowledge of the business end of indie film distribution on DVD and VOD runs deep, and she’s given great, informative talks on the subject in the past. This is a ‘must attend’ event for any indie filmmaker who’s serious about getting their films released by a legitimate company.”
Admission for this event is free for filmmakers whose work is screening at Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, Festival Dream Pass holders, Saturday Day Pass holders, and sponsors of the festival, and $5.00 for the general public. Advance tickets for Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival are available on the Dipson Theatres website, including tickets for a screening of Lloyd Kaufman’s return to Nuke ‘Em High, which will benefit the Niagara Art & Culture Center (NACC) in Noagara Falls.
