Championed by industry executive Page Ostrow, Ostrow and Company has effectively placed films for more than a decade in all genres both domestically and internationally including but not limited to: Theatrical, DVD/VOD, and Broadcast Networks.

Ostrow and Company – Purpose and Commitment

Ostrow and Company swears by advocating the movie-making practices behind a film that begins by having a powerful story, which creates a call to action. The precise execution of a lucrative distribution deal or broadcast licensing deal demands a producer’s rep. The skillful navigation through the entertainment industry by a skilled producer’s rep is what allows a film to arrive in the marketplace and be seen by as many people as possible.

Page Ostrow and Company has organized distribution for over 250 indie feature films; including narratives and documentaries. Our commitment is to promote excellent storytelling that is compelling, as well as, engaging. We offer comprehensive knowledge for screenwriters, producers, and directors who desire to make a difference by showcasing movies that elevate the consciousness of the viewer.

Ostrow and Company deals with all aspects of the distribution process so that the movie-making team can direct their focus on exactly what they do best – Create! Hopefully, the outcome is that the world is a more positive place, says Page Ostrow.

Emphasis on Distribution

Ostrow and Company prioritizes the following components of the distribution model for the benefit of filmmakers, producers, and production companies:

  • Distribution in all categories for finished feature films
  • Secure film financing for feature film projects in development
  • Secure finishing funds for indie films stuck in post-production

Ostrow and Company negotiates distribution for all Domestic/International rights consisting of theatrical, broadcast television, and DVD/VOD. We tactically put together a successful marketing plan for all feature films we represent. We additionally follow up on distributors and sales agents to track revenues and manage collections on behalf of our clients. Ostrow and Company offers a constant stream of quality indie films to the executives/public by seeking out all the significant indie titles at the Film Festivals and Markets. We are successfully expanding our staff of resourceful executives who speak/attend seminars, screenings, and festivals. We strive to interact with all of the innovative/successful filmmakers who deliver the type of projects we can believe in and fit with our vision.

Strategy of Ostrow and Company

As part of our strategy as responsible producer’s representatives, we do a large initial roll-out of each film in order to allow the studio executives to simultaneously experience the movie. Developing a sense of urgency, as well as creating ‘buzz’ is something we are known for and permits us to leverage interest from the different distribution platforms to potentially develop bidding wars for our films. A particular strategic plan is developed for each new feature film we have been hired to represent in or out of the festival circuit.

“ARGO” Wins

It looks like my pick for best picture was correct this year! “ARGO” is a fantastic film and I am very happy for all the filmmakers involved in this film, congratulations!

ARGO: Argo is a 2012 American dramatic thriller film directed by Ben Affleck. This dramatization is adapted from the book The Master of Disguise by CIA operative Tony Mendez, and Joshuah Berman’s 2007 Wired article “The Great Escape” about the “Canadian Caper”, in which Mendez led the rescue of six U.S. diplomats from Tehran, Iran, during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis.

in Anchorage, they all write. And they all have that one great screenplay in them that will make a
great movie. Then there are those who have a great script and they’re trying to get it around but
can’t get financing? Or, the film is in the can, but how does gone get completion funds and/or distribu-
tion? It’s every independent filmmaker’s dilemma: Where do I go to get financing? Who should I trust?
Isthere anybody out there looking out for me?

Page Ostrow

Page Ostrow, president of Ostrow and Company has participated in the financing and or distribution of over 250 narrative feature and documentary films. Ostrow is known as the most hardworking and honest producers reps in Hollywood. Born in “Hollywood North,” also known as Toronto, Canada, Page Ostrow is a first-generation Canadian born of Holocaust survivors, which is inevitably where she acquired her drive to survive in Hollywood proper. She began her career in film as a second assistant director on major Hollywood productions with companies such as Orion, Viacom, Alliance, and H.B.O.

A career opportunity as a development and acquisitions executive drove her from her hometown, to the celluloid capitol of Los Angeles. After working within a Los Angeles-based arm of Alliance Entertainment, Canada’s largest distribution and production company, Ostrow became a “gun for hire” for some of the largest international film distribution companies, Trident, G.E.L., J.L. Media, Initial Entertainment (“The Aviator”, “The Departed”), and many more. She has brokered deals at MIFED, Cannes, NATPE, and AFM in German, French, Spanish, Yiddish, and English. Due to her strong language skills, savvy business acumen, and worldwide contacts over time she has earned a reputation of top negotiator in the film markets and festival circuit closing deals worldwide.

In 1999, Ostrow decided to make a natural transition to consulting for and representing producers, filmmakers, and writers on a consultation and retainer basis. Ostrow has since been credited as an executive producer, co-producer, and associate producer on over 250 films
