Producing an independent movie is hard. Distributing it is even harder. It's getting harder and harder to recognize which festival could be really valuable for your distribution process. Many festival are very costly and give you little or no chance to get selected, specially if you don't have a distributor that works on your movie.

We will watch your movie.

Here's our tip: distribute your movie by choosing festivals that want to empower you and want to give you recognition. Choose festival that give value to your sacrifices and expenses.

We want to give filmmakers a precious tool to showcase their talent to a true audience of jurors and we want that to happen stage by stage, with constant feedback.
