Question by Ramulousss: How can i distribute my documentary film to channels in a profitable fashion?
I am in the process of directing a documentary and am having a hard time figuring out how to distribute my film to top documentary broadcasters such as, Discovery, National Geographic, History, and Travel channel, along with international markets as well. I was also wondering how it would work, and how do they decide on what films to choose and how much to pay. Thanks

Broadcasters don’t generally deal with people who ask these questions on Yahoo Answers. There are lots of resources on the web about documentary distribution, starting with Indiewire.com, documentary.org, etc. How do you sell a film to broadcasters? You get a sales agent or a distributor. Get in line.
