Background and Perspectives on Film Festival Consulting for your films

Poster signed by Arnold for Bruno Chatelin as a thank you token of fantastic Box Office records in France

 

I have been working with film festivals and helping filmmakers for the past 20 years in various capacities. There was only one big lesson I learnt in festivals: Cannes can work miracles for you, if you do the right thing with the right people : dare, work hard and be creative in each of your actions.

HERE IS THE DETAILED STORY OF A 40M $ HANDSHAKE TO ME FOLLOWING OUR SUCCESS IN CANNES GENERATING AN EXTRA 20M AT DOMESTIC BOX OFFICE PLSUS SAME AT INTERNATIONAL.

As a film distributor I have worked on 180 films including first film (the brothers McMullan by Ed Burns, Indian Runner by Sean Penn, Boyz’ n the Hood by John Singleton which launched his film career in Cannes. I also handled major blockbusters like T2, Independence Day, Hook, Cliffhanger, Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia… opportunity for a close work with Woody Allen, Scorcese, Coppola, Terry Gilliam, Oliver Stone, Brian de Palma, Lelouch…

As  Marketing Director for Columbia Tri-Star Films France I broke several Box Office and company records.

I was appointed Managing Director in charge of setting up and running  the new Joint Venture between Twentieth Century Fox and French major UGC.

I have attended over 300 festivals and had films in many of them,  I ran an international  festival in Cherbourg dedicated to student film and observed festivals as guest, jury, president, panelist or reporter I am an advisory Board Member of 5 Festivals LeMIAFF, CIFF, BIFF, The Film Festival Summit.
My passion for festivals and independent film led me to launch after my distribution days the leading portal for the festival community: filmfestivals.com and fest 21.com established 1995.

I am elected member of the Board of European Film Academy, voting member at Cesar and chair of the International Film Festival Summit Europe.

I have started a consulting boutique focused on online communication and entertainment   because I love sharing my knowledge and helping people connect with each other.

Founded in 2006 by film and festival veteran Bruno Chatelin, Major Buzz Factory offers strategic consulting, communication and marketing services to Distributors, Educators, Film Festivals and Independent Filmmakers around the world.
