First Focus International (FFI) was developed and created by filmmakers much like yourself. We, Mark Shady and Leif Holt, began and continue our careers by making and selling films. Because of our first hand knowledge and experience, we’re able to relate to and understand what a filmmaker experiences when attempting to find distribution. Through these experiences and the ultimate forming of FFI, we have developed a proven model for any filmmaker seeking to distribute their product that will maximize returns for any film that we represent, while avoiding the costly mistake of finding a distribution company that may not be the best fit for your film.

Our film, “Deceived”, is currently on the shelves at Walmart, is available to stream through Amazon and is expanding to other distribution channels. [First Focus International’s] honesty, preparation and drive to get your film out there can be hard to find in this business. We highly recommend First Focus International!Sevier Crespo
When Mark and Leif Jumped on board our film, “Black Widows”, things finally started moving. They guided us into exactly the distribution we’d hoped for, but couldn’t get our foot in the door ourselves to get. They not only know the ins and outs everyone else does, but they have some tricks up their sleeves and are constantly exploring new avenues of revenue–Brilliant advisres about what’s needed for your filom to market it to its best advantage.Venita Ozols-Graham
