What is FilmFreeway Gold?
FilmFreeway Gold is an upgraded version of FilmFreeway where festivals and filmmakers share in mutual benefits.
FilmFreeway Gold is entirely optional and allows only Gold member submitters to receive discounted pricing on submissions to verified Gold festivals.
Festivals have complete control over the discounts offered to Gold member submitters, which you can edit, update or cancel anytime.
There are absolutely no fees for festivals to upgrade to Gold.
How does FilmFreeway Gold work?
Let’s imagine that 10% of FilmFreeway submitters are FilmFreeway Gold members. Only those 10% of submitters are eligible to receive your Gold submission pricing. The remaining 90% must pay your standard submission pricing.
Think of Gold as a new pricing tier. For example, for Short Film entries, you might offer the following pricing:
Gold Members: $25
In other words, you are offering a small sub-set of FilmFreeway submitters discounted pricing on submissions in exchange for an entire suite of powerful festival benefits.
Plus, you are always in complete control of your Gold pricing, which you can edit, update or cancel anytime.
How do I upgrade my festival to FilmFreeway Gold?
You can upgrade to Gold for free with just a few clicks! Simply select a discount percentage for only your FilmFreeway Gold submitters (minimum 10%) and you’re done!
Festivals have complete control of the discount percentage offered to Gold member submitters, which you can edit, update or cancel anytime.
After upgrading, your festival will immediately enjoy our entire suite of FilmFreeway Gold festival benefits.
