Filmmakers love to share their stories. And traditionally, their main avenue for reaching viewers has been to screen at film festivals and hope to get distribution.
With less than 10% of all films that screen at festivals across the world getting distribution, it’s clear there’s an opportunity for improvement. These festival films have proven there’s an audience and without a platform to reach them, there’s clearly an audience underserved. Filmmakers are up against the odds from the start and ultimately their mission is to grow viewership, keep making movies, and at the very least, get a return on investment.
