How to Submit a Film
Each film that is submitted goes through a submission review process and an acceptance process. In the submission review process, we review your film from your online screener or DVD.
Once we have received and screened your film, we will contact you. If your film is accepted or we've contacted you for acquisitions, please refer to the Acceptance Process below.
To qualify for IndieFlix, films need to have screened at a film festival, however, we do occasionally make exceptions.
The film submission is a two part process:
Filmmakers DO have options. You CAN be an independent success
IndieFlix is a “filmmakers first” online marketplace and distribution company created to empower filmmakers (both as artists and as entrepreneurs) and to make film festival selected works from around the world available to a broad multi-platform audience. IndieFlix is not the typical distribution company, so please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.
Even if your film becomes available on IndieFlix, it doesn't mean you will automatically start making money. Getting your film onto these platforms is just the first step. You have to help drive traffic and get people to watch your film. This is why building an audience is so important.
With IndieFlix, filmmakers are not locked in and are always free to explore other outlets.
The Money Part
Filmmakers with films on IndieFlix.com will share the royalty pool based on minutes viewed of their film by paying subscribers.
Available Revenue Sources
Online Streaming on IndieFlix.com: We offer both a monthly and annual streaming membership that grant unlimited access to all movies on IndieFlix.
Xbox 360 and Roku: IndieFlix has apps on Xbox 360 and Roku so members have access to IndieFlix films on multiple platforms.
As advancements in technology continue to close the gap between the internet and television, IndieFilx stays up to speed – ensuring that our filmmakers benefit in the most meaningful ways.
IndieFlix subscription and streaming royalties are paid out on a quarterly basis. You may choose the method of payment – either by PayPal account or check – and expect it to arrive 90 business days after the quarter ends. Please note, your filmmaker backend accounting currently only tracks sales from IndieFlix.com.
About The Marketing
Once your film is officially listed as an IndieFlix, we help with the marketing component. All available digital assets are utilized such as preview scene clips, trailers, stills and reviews as well as other communication methods like blogging, facebooking and tweeting.
Other Ways We Can Help
IndieFlix can customize the distribution of your film by delivery method and territory. For instance if you would like to distribute your film only in digital format, and only to Canada and Portugal, it’s no problem.
