IFFR Unleashed

IFFR Unleashed helps selected festival films to find audiences through key Video On Demand (VOD) platforms around the world. It is a long-term commitment to help navigate the still confusing, and occasionally exasperating, on-demand landscape.

Filmmakers, producers and rights holders will be offered the tools to take control of their VOD release strategies, with the considerable benefit of being able to use the IFFR brand to boost their profile and bargaining power.

IFFR believes that the scheme will add to its overarching focus of being a year-round brand, using its expertise, resources and profile to create strong partnerships with filmmakers, platforms and a year-round link to film lovers.

Simultaneously, IFFR aims to provide insight into its exploration of the world of (alternative/do-it-yourself) distribution, sharing its expanding knowledge and setting out to provide filmmakers, producers and rights holders with new skills their future work could benefit from.
