IndieFlix is the fee-free answer to all independent moviemakers seeking representation and distribution assistance. Through its Website, IndieFlix.com, the company recruits and helps independent-minded moviemakers market and sell their movies on-demand.
â€œAll of the time and energy required [for] marketing while managing your filmâ€™s metadataâ€”updating, uploading, shipping masters and inventory or tracking the accounting and paymentsâ€”is a daunting task when youâ€™re selling on 10 or 20 different, hopefully credible, sites,â€ says Scilla Andreen, IndieFlixâ€™s co-founder. â€œWhile providing fans with the access to oneâ€™s work is wonderful, it doesnâ€™t leave much time for filmmaking.â€
By listing with the company, moviemakers can gain time and money to begin or continue another project. Plus, they receive one-third of the profits, and automatically increase their exposure through access to the companyâ€™s numerous distribution partnerships. â€œWeâ€™re confident [moviemakers] will see greater profits from IndieFlix and will appreciate the control, simplicity and interactivity they get from us,â€ says Andreen.
According to the companyâ€™s founding partners, in the U.S. alone there are over 8,000 independent films produced annually that never see a theatrical release. Now, with companies like IndieFlix on the rise, theaters are no longer the only answer to reaching a wide audience.
