A distributor is a person who fixes the release date of a film and the process by which a film is to be displayed or made available for watching. A distributor can do this directly, if he/she owns the distribution network or theaters, or through sub-distributors and theatrical exhibitors. Theatrical distribution software is an intelligent software which helps the film distributor to market the film. Theatrical distribution software is cloud-based which helps in end-to-end booking and theatrical planning. The software is specially designed to help decide exactly where and when to book a film so as to achieve maximum profit. This software enables film booking, film fulfillment, and film marketing teams to collaborate to simplify a release of a movie.
