I talk to a lot of people about this aspect of filmmaking and how important it is to know the business side of the business. I'll lay out a list of books that I have that have been great to read. Recently I've picked up a great resource that I think everyone should have in their library. "Risky Business: Financing and Distributing Independent Films" by Litwak. This book is a great investment. Recently I signed into contract with a distributor for my doc and this book helps to fully understand all that happens on a domestic and international level with the film etc.

Congrats on scoring distribution! that is perhaps the single greatest hurdle other than financing, and its waters are quite difficult to navigate. ...will have to check out the book on Amazon!
