It is exhilarating to be able to offer the opportunities of traditional distribution but with a much more transparent, innovative, and forward-thinking philosophy. --Emily Best

Seed&Spark, the world's leading crowdfunding platform made just for independent film, has concluded a distribution arrangement that extends its distribution reach to millions of cable customers across the United States. Through a new agreement, major cable providers will now have access to Seed&Spark’s library of excellent independent content for their Movies On Demand platforms, and will also be receiving films that have activated fan-bases behind them. Both crowdfunding site and now distribution player, Seed&Spark will nurture filmmakers through the entire filmmaking process: from successful crowdfunding to effective distribution.
With this new deal, transactional titles from Seed&Spark will be presented via most major cable video providers across the United States, including Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Bright House Networks, and many other independent operators.
Seed&Spark’s increasingly aggressive distribution option also includes their own transactional viewing platform. Now a film that elects to go through Seed&Spark’s crowd-funding process is eligible for the distribution offering, in which a filmmaker is afforded not only the ability to reach millions of cable and digital subscribers, but the guidance of how to successfully reach an audience.
Movies from the Seed&Spark library will be delivered to major U.S. cable providers by leading distributor iN DEMAND, http://www.indemand.com.
“It is exhilarating to be able to offer the opportunities of traditional distribution but with a much more transparent, innovative, and forward-thinking philosophy,” says Emily Best, CEO of Seed&Spark. “Through our partner iN DEMAND, our films can air on the biggest cable systems, allowing our filmmakers a fantastic reach into the marketplace and us to continue to bring our films to new audiences.”
Seed&Spark’s current library includes upcoming skateboarding documentary, I AM THALENTE featuring Tony Hawk, Kenny Anderson, and Lance Mountain to be released theatrically this April; THIS IS HAPPENING starring Cloris Leachman, James Wolk, and Mickey Sumner; and Sundance director Meera Menon’s first film, FARAH GOES BANG.
