I Wake Up Screening, a new non-fiction book, shows independent filmmakers what to do once their film has been
made. Film industry insiders John Anderson and Laura Kim co-authored the book and infused it with unique insights from top film industry executives, critics, and filmmakers.
"The explosion of independent cinema over the past fifteen years has created thousands of would-be filmmakers, all working hard, making thousands of independent films.," says John Anderson.
Laura Kim agrees and adds: "In our book, I Wake Up Screening, we tell these filmmakers how to get their films talked about, written about, sold and seen."
In the book, Anderson and Kim explain how to get independent films evaluated, how to put together the perfect team, how to deal with the media, how to navigate the festival circuit, and how to win friends and influence people.
The authors' advice is supported by interviews with more than sixty top film industry insiders.
