Jon Reiss has written a richly detailed "how to" book that is indispensable for anyone seeking to skirt the traditional film distribution model and self distribute. I literally keep his book on my desk and refer to it frequently for practical guidance and ideas about how to get films out into the market. Reiss generously details exactly how to go about this and reduces a seemingly daunting challenge into tangible, realistic and smart steps that will help the indie filmmaker thrive.

I'm about to release a feature-length documentary, "Troubadour Blues," and Jon Reiss's excellent book is providing me with the road map for building and sustaining an audience without a major studio affiliation or distribution deal. This is the field guide to the brave new world of DIY distribution. I teach at a film school, and when I hear people talking about pitching their scripts to Hollywood studios, or going to Sundance looking for a distribution deal, I refer them to this book. If you can't make it to one of Jon's high-energy workshops (and even if you can), Think Outside the Box Office is required reading. Anyone trying to build an audience for an independent film needs this book. I can't praise it enough.

As someone who works as film distribution and audience engagement consultant, I highly recommend Jon's book: the most complete, clear and helpful guide to DIY and hybrid distribution I've ever read.
Making a film without a distribution and promotional plan nowadays is plainly naive. Thanks to Jon's book,however, even first time filmmakers can rely on a solid guidance to help them decide what moves to make when they embark into and during the filmmaking process.
A truly revolutionary tool in its DIY approach and in its revelation of some of the best kept secrets of film distribution.
