“Most filmmakers can’t afford to try something that doesn’t work.” – Francis Ford Coppola
There was a time, not so long ago, when a film’s life ended with the theatrical run. Fortunately, that is no longer the case. A theatrical run is still vital, as it establishes the film’s credibility, generates buzz, and produces those important reviews. But today, a film’s life does not end with the theatrical run—it’s just the beginning.
Our CINEMAflix DISTRIBUTION program is committed to helping you generate big bucks long after the theatrical run ends. The program achieves this by marketing and selling your film in three major ancillary (non-theatrical) markets:
1. TV SALES and DISTRIBUTION. Selling your film to major TV broadcast stations and networks in domestic and international markets can be nerve-racking but highly lucrative. It requires strong relationships with overseas outlets and sales agents. With strong marketing, it’s not uncommon for a TV network to pay 5 figures for the right type of film. We work with outlets like the BBC, Channel 4 (UK), Russia Today, AMC, and National Geographic.
2. DIGITAL PLATFORMS and CABLE VOD. Acceptance by many of these platforms will depend on the quality of the film, proper encoding, and the comprehensiveness of the Submission Package (which we produce). We use professionals to do the encoding and we work hard to compile a compelling Submission Package. We offer most of the popular platforms and cable stations like Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, Hulu, Google, Sony, Starz, HBO, and Comcast.
3. NO RISK DVD SALES. DVDs of your film will be marketed to retail chains, schools, colleges, and libraries.Your film will be prepared and placed on secure servers, making it available for purchase and/or distribution on an ON DEMAND basis. No inventory to maintain, no warehousing, no missed business opportunities, no waste, no risk.
