WAMclips.com is fast becoming one the premiere sites for digital film distribution and sales for independent filmmakers. Filmmakers Alliance is a non-profit filmmaking collective in which members share their time, energy and expertise for each other's film projects from concept to distribution.

Additionally, WAMclips offers a non-exclusive license for their service and allows filmmakers to keep all the rights to their projects.

Comments founder Laurence Barbera, "WAMclips.com is honored that Filmmaker Alliance has agreed to come on board. Filmmakers Alliance is the largest and longest running filmmakng collective in the United States and features 250 active members, many of whom are award-winning filmmakers. We couldn't be more pleased."
Filmmakers Alliance was founded in the early 1990's to aid in the production of independent films. It encourages filmmakers to produce socially relevant projects with themes that restore humanity, explore diversity, are intelligent and have a personal vision with originality and emotional resonance. It has helped develop many award winning features and shorts that have been programmed in numerous film festivals. Some of these festivals include Clermont-Ferrand, Sundance, Berlin, AFI, Los Angeles Film Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival, Cinequest and South X Southwest, to mention a few.
Filmmakers Alliance Executive Director, Diana Gaidry continues, "Traditional distribution has not been kind to the independent filmmaker. WAMclips.com offers the independent filmmaker a high quality platform for their work and a generous percentage per download. We appreciate Laurence's commitment to the 'little guy'."
WAMclips.com offers a wide variety of genres for downloads. They include action, drama, sci-fi, romance, horror, comedy, documentary, classic, westerns, music videos, avant-garde, film festival favorites, film school projects and special interests.
Plans are underway, in early 2008, to produce a special event for the debut of Filmmakers Alliance projects uploaded on WAMclips and offered for sale.
