"Indie Distribution: What Works and What's Next", Janet Brown, EVP Gunpowder & Sky.


With the increasing growth of hungry streaming platforms and new channel strategies targeting niche audiences, how do these new business models affect indie filmmakers? Janet Brown is a pioneer in indie film distribution and works across theatrical, broadcast, on demand platforms and the new generation of ad-supported and niche digital channels. Brown will discuss how the industry is creating both domestic and international strategies, as well as new business models built around distributors becoming financiers themselves.



Janet Brown was the founder of FilmBuff, a pioneer in digital-first distribution for feature films, docs and episodic content. Filmbuff was acquired by Gunpowder & Sky, a digital studio backed by Warner Media where Janet leads all acquisitions, co-production and global sales. She is also responsible for the growth and expansion of niche entertainment channels including DUST (Sci-Fi) and ALTER (Horror), as well as the G&S podcast network which includes DUST, the #1 global scripted podcast.
