Focus

Ostrow and Company focuses on three main areas of business for the filmmakers, independent producers and production companies:

Ostrow and Company negotiates deals for international and domestic distribution for all rights including theatrical, television and home entertainment. We strategically roll out with a film or project. We also follow up to track sales and handle collections on behalf of our clients.

Ostrow and Company provides a constant flow of quality films to the marketplace by scouting all the major film festivals, television and film markets. We are steadily building our staff of creative executives who attend film festivals, screenings and events. We aim to connect with the creative community who deliver the type of films we believe in and who see the benefit in engaging us to provide the kind of business support we offer as producers representatives.

Strategy

We roll out wide with a film or project in order to provide the opportunity for the executives to simultaneously experience the product at the studios, mini majors and independent international and domestic distribution companies. Creating a sense of urgency and ‘buzz’ is something we are known for and allows us to leverage interest from the various distribution platforms in order to create bidding wars. A specific strategic game plan is designed for each new completed film we have been engaged to represent in or out of the festival circuit.
