From day one our ambitions have always been to support the independent film industry and all the filmmakers and creatives that connect with us, either at our festivals or from afar.
We are again delighted to announce a new industry partnership with a very dynamic distributor that is set to have a very high profile 2020 and many years to follow!
As part of our collaboration we are able to offer our winning – feature and foreign language films fast track review and consideration with global distributor Indie Rights. Whilst we cannot promise distribution we are in the position to facilitate more influential introductions and add projects to a priority listing thanks to our partnership that will ensure all projects are reviewed and highly considered.
Indie Rights, a subsidiary of Nelson Madison Films, is a full service, global distributor with direct relationships to major distribution outlets. Based on the experience of its founders, Linda Nelson and Michael Madison, the need for a new type of distribution for truly independent films is evident. Thousands of great independent films are made each year and never find an audience. They play at film festivals all over the world and are never discovered by the sales agents and distributors that frequent only the top tier festivals such as Sundance, Toronto and Cannes.
SHIFTED, their first digital feature, was the first movie on Amazon’s UnBox (the predecessor of Amazon Video) and was used by Amazon to promote their platform for over five years. DELIVERED was the first independent feature to edit and master a 4K movie using Adobe CS5. Partnerships were forged early on with the leading digital platforms including Amazon, Google, AppleTV, TubiTV, and others. These partnerships insure that Indie Rights can offer the very best audience opportunities for their own films, as well as the more than 800 other filmmakers they work with. Indie Rights exhibits every year at AFM and the Cannes Film Market.
Here at Fusion International Film Festivals we have seen the quality of films on the circuit and want to bridge the gap and help find these wonderful films an audience long after the festival circuit.
Please note: the films that will be considered MUST be packaged and ready to be delivered if they are selected for distribution. We can provide you with a list of the required deliverables.
Keep on creating!
Dan & Steve
