Jonathan Wolf Interviewed on AFM 2017

 

Vanessa McMahon: This is an interesting year in distribution, right? What's the general feeling at this market in light of The Weinstein Company falling apart and other distribution companies struggling against Netflix etc.?

WOLF: I tend to take a long view as opposed to just how things are going this week. As Netflix and subscription services around the world continued to grow the value of syndication in film started to tank and disappear. It basically destroyed that value. A decade ago a buyer of a film in Italy could forecast what the cycle of syndication was worth fifteen years out and they would put that into their ultimate estimated value. As subscription services were built that whole syndication piece disappeared. All those cable networks and stations had to switch to something new because they don't play movies anymore, everything's available on subscription. This created uncertainty for the buyers who were coming in and buying all rights for their country. Business hates uncertainty because you don't know when to take risk. If things are certain, like if you know it's going to be raining for the next week you know to carry a jacket or an umbrella. If someone says, “We don't know how the weather is, what do I pack for my trip? Well, I can't pack everything so maybe I don't take the trip.” So, if you know what the weather is you can plan ahead. If you know what the marketplace will be you can plan ahead and make offers appropriately.

When uncertainty came along the buyers became very risk adverse. So, yes they'd continue to buy films but they'd be very cautious with their offers. What we're seeing now is while the change is not complete, the buyers can now see over the horizon. They can see where this is going to land, what the values are going to be, what they can and can't get out of subscription versus on demand and all the other mediums. So they're more confident in making offers to cover a longer period of time because they have a sense of where that is. Because of this, many films we're seeing here were washed out of the process because they were packaged a few years ago, which was a different marketplace then. Those films have missed the marketplace in terms of pricing the film properly. All films will sell if they're priced right. Just like everything sells in a department store if it's priced right. Sometimes there are discounts because a store guessed wrong on a style or bought too many. Film is no different. You have films that were made a few years ago, anticipating the marketplace would be a certain way. They come here when it's finished and find out the marketplace changed. So, that's a struggle. Now that most sales companies and buyers see where the marketplace is going they can anticipate the future, they can make production decisions today with confidence that the film's done in eighteen months. The film still has to meet everyone's expectations but the marketplace won't pull the rug out from under them and change. So there's a sense of confidence of having come to a stable place now.

Read the full interview and Jonathan's views on the following questions:

What does the future of the AFM market look like with the new studios like Netflix who not only produce but self distribute?
So there is still optimism for independent filmmakers in the face of series?
Can you explain the AFM on demand screening platform?
There's a lot of doom and gloom in the trades about the current marketplace. Was this a good year for AFM in your view?
