cinematic audience

ANGRY MONK comes at a time when interest in tibet is still high but viewers are becoming disgruntled with repeated images of the dalai lama or the esoteric aspects of buddhism the film thus has a strong potential cinematic audience through arthouse film circles and university film clubs, especially in the USA, the EU and switzerland (where filmgoers have already developed a sensibility and interest in documentaries about tibet). in switzerland angry monk productions already has a distributor: xenix filmdistribution, and in europe two further distributors, pegasos film in germany and contact film in holland, have expressed interest in the project. presently angry monk productions is still looking for interested distributors in europe, mainly france and the UK, as well as for an US distributor: ampsales(at)angrymonk.ch.

television sales

for similar reasons, there is a strong potential market in television sales across the USA and europe. swiss television SF DRS has already bought the film, while there are a number of other european television channels for which ANGRY MONKwould be well suited (france's arte, planete cable; germany's BR, arte, WDR; etc.). it may also be of interest to PBS in the USA.


for more general information on distribution and television sales or if you are interested in distributing the film or buying it for your television station, send us an email to ampsales(at)gmail.com or use our inquiry form in the contact section.

festival exposure

our production schedule aims to have the film finished in time for the montreal or amsterdam international festival of fall/winter 2005. in addition, angry monk productions expects festival exposure for ANGRY MONK based on its own previous festival experience, as well as the large number of film festivals which have both documentary strengths and asian ties (vancouver, pusan, san francisco, yamagata, hong kong, berlin [forum], paris [cinéma du réel], auckland).

video/dvd

due to the educational nature of the film, ANGRY MONK should have good prospects in video/dvd rental and sales to universities, schools and organizations interested in the culture and politics of tibet. snow lion publications (USA), the largest distributor in the world of buddhist and tibetan literature and videos, has already expressed interest.
