Hi guys,

I love watching latin and african themed movies, mostly online and on my netflix. But I've read of so many movie producers from these countries barely get by with distributing their films. Partly because the big studios are running the show and it's just damn hard to find the proper distributor. And with piracy off hte charts, dvds' just a dead business.

I've been working on a project now where I can provide the opportunity for these indie film makers to get their movies distributed well. Issue I'm having now is how to find or get in contact with these film makers, specifically in latin america and africa. Any advice please?

Go to imdb.com, and select the imdbPro tab. For a monthly subscription fee, you can get inner access to potential contacts with virtually anyone in the film industry. At imdb, you can sort through virtually every movie ever made anywhere in the world and find out the identiry of the producer, distributor, etc. I am not a member, so I don't know exactly how it works internally, but its purpose is to facilitate contact within the industry.
