Distributor is seeking good Documentaries

Have you produced any great docs for college classrooms and libraries? We are particularly interested in educational programs for Urban Studies, African-American Studies, Latin-American Studies and the Behavioral & Healthcare Sciences
Through our Documentary & film Library at www.forwardintime.com, Parallel lines currently distributes almost 400 titles in 23 educational categories, We have sold our documentaries and independent film titles to more than 900 schools and libraries in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and parts of Asia. What we believe sets us apart from more traditional documentary distributors is that we do not force producers to sign a 2-3 year exclusive agreement. We are only interested in selling programs to specific markets. To that end, we allow producers to opt out in 45 days (in writing) if they are unhappy with the our marketing efforts.

Our Producers also have the option to supply the complete DVD packages for sale or to have us handle the duplication and printing for them.

So, if any you have documentaries or independent films (at least 15 min. in length) that could help promote discussion or raise awareness in college classrooms, you can check out the related categories on our web site and send us a DVD screener to review or email us a link to watch the film online. My assistant and I personally watch all docs that are submitted for review. It usually takes us 2-3 weeks to respond.
