Film Finders, the 13 year-old production tracking service run by Sydney Levine and Peter Belsito, has reclaimed its independence after striking an exclusive partnership last year with IFILM, the online movie site specialising in data and short film exhibition.

The two have restructured their relationship so that, while they will continue to promote and co-market their services, each business will now operate independently. IFILM will continue to market Film Finders to its audience and continue to host and maintain the Film Finders website, while Film Finders will remain based in IFILM's Los Angeles headquarters.

"We look forward to collaborating in the future, but we also anticipate many opportunities better suited for independent entities," said Levine in a statement. "Operating autonomously will give us the flexibility to exploit those opportunities more fully and to manage our growth more effectively."
