The Lau Haizetara Documentary Co-Production Forum and the Treeline Distribution strengthen their successful collaboration for another year. They will grant, for the fourth time, the Distribution and Festival Consultancy Award, consisting of 2 consultancy sessions on the project. A first consultancy session during the documentary development stage, and a second session once the documentary is finished.
This initiative aims to offer the best commercial distribution strategy to follow (selection of distribution company or sales agent, television, internet, cinema, etc.) and suggest a guide to which are the most appropriate festivals, depending on the content and style of the documentary.
In 2015 it was awarded to the project “In Search of the Oscar“, a documentary in which the director Octavio Guerra tackled the story of Óscar Peyrou (69), a film critic and president of the FIPRESCI prizes who lives in Madrid and whose life, currently, is empty. He will try to discover himself, settle scores with his past and his family, and show the hypocrisy of society and the lie embedded in all of its strata.
TREELINE DISTRIBUTION is an independent sales agent active around the world and in media (TV, theatrical, home video, digital platforms, etc.) that carefully selects the titles to represent, taking into account key internationalisation criteria, the fruit of the experience accumulated over many years of working in the industry.
The renewal of this agreement means the consolidation of this forum as a meeting point of interest for the European documentary industry and the different agents in the industry.
The winner of this edition will be revealed at the end of the 12th Forum of Co-Production, which will be held within the framework of the San Sebastian Film Festival from the 20th to the 22nd September 2016.
