The San Francisco Film Society has revealed the participants for their inaugural edition of A2E: Artist to Entrepreneur, a two-part direct distribution lab taking place during the San Francisco Film Festival and spearheaded by Film Society executive director Ted Hope.

CFC is pleased to be participating in the program by sending co-directors/writers Dane Clark ('08) and Linsey Stewart ('08), and producer Jordan Gross ('08) with their upcoming feature film I PUT A HIT ON YOU. Also attending is producer Mike MacMillan.

The lab will match participating filmmakers with a lineup of tech partners—including Vimeo, Cinedigm, IndieFlix, TopSpin and Tugg, among others—in an “open source” collaboration with direct distribution leaders and the developers of new digital tools to determine if direct distribution would be a viable financial and creative option for their projects. These sessions will produce tangible results in the form of case studies and project-specific business plans. At the end of the process, select projects committed to a direct distribution approach will be presented to potential funders and collaborators in the hope of making their engagement strategy a reality.

Starring Sara Canning and Aaron Ashmore, I PUT A HIT ON YOU is a darkly comedic "lo-fi" romantic thriller about a brokenhearted woman that teams up with her ex-boyfriend to try and stop the hit man she accidentally hired to kill him.
