Boutique Distribution: A Treasure Trove for Independent Films

Join Factory 25 founder and New Hampshire native Matt Grady in a fascinating discussion for both film-goers and filmmakers alike about small independent film distribution. Featuring special guests from some of today’s most popular boutique distributors, including Argot Pictures and Fun City Editions, hear how viewers are able to directly discover new films for themselves and how filmmakers can successfully discover new audiences through a more personalized curation approach offered by these companies. The discussion will open for questions from attendees.


Matt is the founder of Factory 25, a Brooklyn-based independent film production and distribution company launched in 2009. He was named “One of the Most Influential People in Brooklyn Culture,” and has been called “One of the most important curatorial voices of new, independent American films.” Matt’s mission is to expose the world to under-the-radar films, music, and other curiosities theatrically and digitally, as well as on TV, VOD, VHS, and limited-edition discs with vinyl LPs and books. Factory 25 titles include Actual People, Other Music, Inspector Ike, Superior, Sylvio, Amy Seimetz’s Sun Don’t Shine, and the restored Sundance Grand Jury Prize winning film In the Soup by Alexandre Rockwell. Matt also produced Nathan Silver’s The Great Pretender, Onur Tukel’s Applesauce and Summer of Blood, Theodore Collatos & Carolina Monnerat’s Queen of Lapa, and Bryan Wizemann’s You Mean Everything to Me.
