Film promotion and distribution service Distrify is teaming with Creative Scotland on a website dedicated to watching and sharing Scottish films.
Executives from Creative Scotland and Distrify are in Cannes meeting distributors and sales agents, to launch scottishfilms.com later this year.
Distrify is pioneer in direct-to-audience online film distribution. The company now offers any film institution, film archives or library rights holder to set up a web platform where their content can be digitisted, centralised and become profitable.
Distrify helps get films to wider global audiences adopting the social media viral faculties at its full strength by turning every trailer for a film into an instant VOD player.
“When someone shares a trailer for a film on your Facebook wall, you watch the trailer, you think ‘this looks cool’ and then what? Until now, you had to wait for it to be released or go hunting for where you could buy it,” says Distrify co-founder Andy Green [pictured]. “Now you can click ‘Rent’ or ‘Buy’ immediately upon discovering the film.”
Distrify also recently worked on Bangalore-based hometalkies.com for a Kannada-language film portal.
