In a film industry dominated by huge production companies with even bigger budgets, how do promising new film producers make their presence known? How do the future Steven Spielbergs and Francis Ford Coppolas get their visions out into the world?

IndieFlix, the premier platform for independent film, was founded by filmmakers for fellow filmmakers and their audiences around the world. With over 8,000 films representing over 85 countries and showcased at thousands of film festivals around the world, IndieFlix has helped give a voice to independent directors and producers. The proprietary IndieFlix distribution platform collects thousands of short and feature-length films in an easy-to-use interface that compensates filmmakers for every minute of viewing.

Through a unique relationship with Recorded Books, IndieFlix offers its discovery network to libraries around the world. Branded as InstantFlix: Powered by IndieFlix, the platform is free to patrons through their library’s contract.

This Library Journal webinar features an enagaging panel of experts, including IndieFlix founder Scilla Andreen, a selection of independent filmmakers, and a librarian currently promoting the service. Join the webinar and discover how your library can help spread the voice of independent filmmakers to your patrons.
