Recorded Books, the world's largest independent producer of audiobooks, has announced that it will begin worldwide distribution of IndieFlix for Libraries, a premiere online streaming service provider of award-winning independent films, shorts and documentaries from around the world. IndieFlix is viewable on computers and mobile devices.
"Recorded Books has been an important independent film partner with libraries, distributing award winning independent films on DVD for almost ten years now," said Rich Freese, President and CEO of Recorded Books, LLC. "IndieFlix will allow us to continue to provide great films and independent film services to libraries, using the latest technology to reach patrons and deliver an exceptional viewing experience."
IndieFlix is a dynamic online movie service that curates and brings independent film to the mainstream. Library patrons will have access to thousands of award winning independent and foreign films from over 2,000 film festivals worldwide, whenever and wherever they want. Patrons have the ability to curate their own viewing experience by selecting the genre, length, festival and intended audience of the films they are interested in viewing. Each film includes a summary, cast and crew list, films festivals and awards. Comprehensive directors notes, access to filmmakers and the ability to review and rate films are features that are also available.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Recorded Books," said Scilla Andreen, CEO and Co-Founder of IndieFlix. "Powered by technology, IndieFlix was started by filmmakers and is run by real people. Recorded Books allows our filmmakers to reach movie lovers everywhere. The partnership allows library patrons worldwide to see films they normally would not have access to. That is what IndieFlix is all about, connecting people through. It's a completely new model that removes the gatekeepers and compensates the filmmaker. Every minute watched a filmmaker gets paid."
