The team of Social Machinery Film Festival reserves
the rights to select some of the films of the edition 2018
to be screened and promoted in Canada - Toronto.

FFD Zagabria - Croatia
https://www.filmfestivalsdays.com

Joseph Caristena (art director of Social Machinery Film Festival)
will be at the first edition of FFD Film Festival Days in Zagabria - Croatia
as speaker and moderator.

The team of Social Machinery Film Festival reserves
the rights to select some of the films of the edition 2018
(and the past editions) to be inserted (as valuable assets)
in the presentations and discussions of Joseph Caristena during the event of FFD.

The team of Social Machinery Film Festival
is working on a new innovative distribution agreement with
a Media Group, a company based in New York - USA.

This is a major media distribution company that focuses on film and television.

The agreement partnership has the following benefits:

- Commission over the revenue generated through each film.
- Worldwide Distribution on all Digital Platforms.
(iTunes, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox, Sony Playstation and more).
- Inflight Film Distribution (To all Major Worldwide Airlines).
- Global Exposure to the Festival and it's Filmmakers.
- DVD Physical Distribution.

Only the filmmakers who sign an agreement with the team of Social Machinery Film Festival will benefit of all these advantages.

The most advanced benefit in this agreement (this is my personal opinion)
is the "Inflight Film Distribution (all major Worldwide Airlines)".
This is an audience of over 1.5 billion passengers per year.
