Indiepix, the Internet-based independent film distributor and Dogwoof, the film distributor specialising in Independent Films and world cinema, have formed a distribution alliance.

The partnership will enable Indiepix to extend its film distribution to the UK and will provide Dogwoof with a means to distribute its film titles in America.

As part of the agreement, Dogwoof will promote IndiePix's titles across the UK through a variety of distribution formats including theatrical screenings, DVD sales, TV contracts and online distributions.

End Of America, the documentary based on the book by author Naomi Wolf, will be the first IndiePix title to go-live in January in the UK through Dogwoof.

Commenting on the alliance Andy Whittaker, CEO of Dogwoof, said:

'We are pleased to launch this venture with IndiePix, as both companies see a positive outlook for Independent Film generally, and the documentary sector in particular,'

'With a competitive cost structure, a growing audience, as well as greater connectivity to digital content, this partnership will help us to continue developing a strong offering for both filmmakers and consumers alike' Whittaker added.

Bob Alexander, president of IndiePix said: 'At a time when traditional independent film distributors are struggling, we hope this collaboration will step up for the many fans who seek a special vision of the world and of course the filmmakers who are continuing to pursue their craft and develop their voice. This partnership stems from synergies within both companies and we are delighted to be working with a leading UK film industry organisation.'
