How much are the foreign film markets worth? | AMA with Roland Rojas of BidSlate
This week’s question submitted by Devin Dixon, Founder | Bingewave:
Q: How much is foreign markets worth? General questions with variables i know, but what is the high level allure?
A: Many variables fall into what foreign markets are worth financially (particular territory, and what genre is appealing at any given time, length of film, etc). The true “value” of foreign markets to a filmmaker is exposure. Having one’s content seen by as many audiences in as many regions/territories is key to future growth; of course, the financial gain to one’s investors helps as well. The extent of a film’s foreign reach will undoubtedly create a more desirable situation for the filmmaker’s next project.
