Independent filmmakers are finding more and more online tools to help them self-distribute their films directly to audiences, but traditional and more lucrative distribution channels continue to be closed off. Unless an indie filmmaker can afford a producer’s rep, or take their film to the major audiovisual content tradeshows, an indie is unlikely to ever see his or her film released theatrically, broadcast on TV, distributed widely on DVD, or even end up on the radar of VOD and mobile services.

IPEX VIEW is inviting indie filmmakers to put their films on the market through the IPEX VIEW online film & video content tradeshow. According to IPEX VIEW COO Daniel Lafleche, IPEX VIEW offers independent filmmakers unprecedented access to a professional community, high quality streaming video, and, perhaps most importantly of all, unrivalled e-mail marketing tools customized for the industry. On IPEX VIEW, indies join a community of established film distributors and film buyers already using the system.

“Finding distribution can be very intimidating, and it is very hard to know where to begin,” explains Lafleche. “The IPEX system offers a complete package of tools to help take the guesswork out of film and video marketing. The IPEX system can be used to easily generate e-mails that will be attractive to buyers, blast them to an extensive contact list, and make it easy for buyers to see all-important video trailers without the unprofessional distractions of YouTube or similar video sharing sites. If users do not have a list of contacts to market directly to, we can help in the creation of contact lists.”

As Lafleche puts it, “IPEX answers the questions of what to send, how to send, and who to send it to. The goal is to make it clear to buyers that your independent production company is a professional member of this industry.”

Independent filmmakers can use the IPEX service to promote up to three titles at no charge.
