Any recommendations for third party distributors? A filmmaker I talked to once recommended an outfit in New Jersey and now I've forgotten the name of it.... I'll go looking for it - in the mean time if anyone else has suggestions on distribution channels, please chime-in.
Found it. Transit Media in New Jersey. This is the outfit Jay Rosenblatt recommended..

It's actually not the hardest thing to get a distributor to CONSIDER your movie - especially if it has any accolade or name talent or any angle at all. If it fits their genre, they'll probably watch the first 10 minutes of it.
A producer's rep would be able to help guide you through this and tak a 10 percent cut of the sale. But if they land you a favorable deal, it's worth it.
Otherwise, you can just do your due dilligence.
Check out AFM members for distributors - there's a list online somewhere for sure.
Know that at some point you'll need E&O insurance before someone actually releases the movie. Often distributors are the ones who pay for this. But it is unlikely that Netflix would pay for this for you unless they were really excited about the movie.

This gives me a bit of homework to do.
