I’m Nadin Hadi. I’m based in London and I write, analyse, and consult on film distribution. When I’m not writing about distribution, I work with filmmakers and production companies to help them make great commercially viable content, from development through to distribution and marketing.
I got my start in film distribution as a sales agent. I worked as Director, Sales and Acquisitions for LA sales company MultiVisionnaire Pictures. I attended the major film markets, got to know and work with distributors first hand, and negotiated deals for movies across different territories.
I work independently now and my clients include production companies, filmmakers and distributors. I work for Angel and Bear Productions advising on development and finance. I consult as a buyer rep, evaluating, scouting and sourcing content for film distributors in Benelux, Malaysia, Latin America, Australia, Spain, France, Turkey and more.
I’m on the ground at Berlin, Cannes, TIFF and AFM where I assess projects for pre-sale, screen movies and close distribution deals, giving me a unique insight into what’s commercial and in demand.
I’m passionate about helping filmmakers to make great movies and get them out into the world to be seen. I can help you with script development, film finance and distribution. I’m available to work as a Producer of Marketing and Distribution and can help you develop the right strategy for your film, build an audience and secure the best distribution partners for your content.
In addition to writing here, I’ve been interviewed by BBC Worldwide about film distribution and have been a speaker at BFI NET.WORK Wales Producers’ Away Day and Scottish Talent Network for emerging filmmakers. If you’d like me to join a panel or give a talk for your film festival, event or university course, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
