5 Steps to Theatrical Distribution with TUGG for Indie Filmmakers (with Infographic)

from Nicolas Gonda

TUGG is a platform that allows filmmakers and fans to host special movie events and screenings in theatres throughout the U.S. 

1. Create an Event
Choose the date and select the location for your theatrical event, and TUGG will reserve the theatre and give you a personalized event page to pre-sell tickets for your screening.

2. Spread the Word
Promote the event to your fans and community with online and offline marketing. Coordinate with alpha influencers in the event locale to lead the promotion of screenings through peer-to-peer engagement in their community. The audience can be targeted for optimal word-of-mouth.

3. Meet the Required RSVPs
Sell enough tickets before the event deadline and your screening will be confirmed. If the threshold isn’t reached, the event will be called off and no one will be charged.

4. Host Your Theatrical Event
Turn your screenings into exciting events and complete film experiences with special in-theatre introductions, discussions, Q&As, musical performances, raffles, and more.

5. Generate Revenue
TUGG is financially risk-free – theatre rental, ticketing, and print shipping costs to filmmakers are completely paid for by event presales. Ancillary products can be sold on a direct-to-consumer basis through sales on event pages.
