Online broadcaster ScreenZone is inviting documentary filmmakers to submit their films to be part of its online catalogue.
ScreenZone is a newly established video website for documentaries, which offers streaming on a pay per view basis. It has been set up to connect more filmmakers with more viewers and for both to get better value.
Filmmakers get paid between $2.99 and $5.00 per steam of their film, according to the length and release date. Please check the website for details on pricing: screenzone.tv
The Deal for Filmmakers
ScreenZone is offering non-exclusive license agreements with film suppliers (filmmakers, distributors, networks and studios); that is, anybody is free to sell their films through competing websites to get the best possible sales for their film. We only ask that you allow us to compete and hopefully excel in your interest.
• Film suppliers receive 70% of sales revenue.
• All films must be at least 20 minutes in length.
• The ScreenZone website has an easy online registration and upload
process for filmmakers, to enable quick and efficient access to international audiences.
ScreenZone was set up by independent filmmakers to help filmmakers, and we understand that there are few outlets for the huge volume of documentaries produced. The internet can overcome this bottleneck and ScreenZone has been set up to do just that.
It has a range of user-friendly search and discovery tools to help guide prospective viewers towards specific topics, genres and filmmakers. We are also keen to support filmmakers who go the extra distance, sometimes risking persecution to provide insights into important issues.
ScreenZone will be promoting the catalogue through news and reviews, and by addressing themes and topics for documentaries around big issues. It also offers a wide range of services such as filmmaker profiles, online promotion and networking for film enthusiasts. In the coming months we will be building more exciting features into our website.
