The Raindance Marketplace and Hollyshorts Marketplace provide filmmakers with more opportunity for their work to be discovered and licensed even after the film festivals end.
Vuulr partners with renowned film festivals, Raindance Film Festival and HollyShorts Film Festival, to create dedicated online marketplaces to showcase films that have made the Official Selection, giving independent filmmakers an avenue for their work to be discovered and acquired by buyers or distributors worldwide.
Filmmakers screening at the Raindance Film Festival and HollyShorts Film Festival can list their work on the Festival’s very own marketplace, where interested buyers will be able to watch trailers and screeners, check avails, make offers and negotiate directly with them.
“Both the Raindance Film Festival and HollyShorts Film Festivals are influential events in the industry, and we are very proud to have been selected to power their marketplaces with Vuulr’s platform technology.” said Ian McKee, Vuulr CEO. “There’s no better time than the present to be an independent filmmaker, we’re seeing unparalleled demand for well-made indie content around the world. We’re glad to be able to support indie talent in finding success.”
