Yup. It's great. Well conceived. Lots of spiritual meanings and hey - we like snails too.

So you made your film, sent it to film festivals, maybe tried direct contact with a few distributors.... and zilch, right! Welcome to the normal world of film distribution for Indi Film Makers. Without large budgets to take your film to Film Fairs (places where people come to buy and sell films) and to promote them, the chances are your movie is going nowhere. Sorry. But it's true.

A whole different industry exists now  to make more money out of film makers: it's called the Film Festival Hype! Most festivals do not even watch your film, they'll just take your money and tell you its rejected.  It's a great business and that's why 5000 odd festivals are listed on Withoutabox  / IMDB. Why do you think you are paying 25 to 80 dollars to submit?

Most of the traditional distributors you contact are probably now owned by the large studios. Any successful small distributor is bought out by one of the big guys. That way, they can make sure their film get out there, not yours.

So how do you, the lower budget Independent film maker get a look in?
IMDP has been set up to help with that, so first of all - welcome to reality and real solutions.

 



Tell us where your Trailer is and we'll take a look. If it is great quality,and made as an Indie with small budget, we'll feature it here.      submit here  


ABOUT
We are about getting more smaller budget films of high quality into the public domain: distribution! We are challenging the traditional routes and existing avenues of distribution where large budget, often poor story-telling, eye-candy movies are given precedence over great stories told with care on low budgets.

We wish to put pressure on the BBFC to lower the fee for Ratings Certificate for low budget UK Films.
They currently charge a minimum fee of £750.00 pound!

To: The Council of the BBFC

I write in support of Independent Film makers in the UK.

I believe your 'one suit fits all' fee system for rating certificates is unfair and

is undermining new talent in the British Film Industry.
 

Small Independent Film producers often create a film for less than £30,000

whereas a normal minimum budget production would cost £250,000

and 'normal budget' would be in excess of £2,000,000.

As a 'non-profit-making' company chartered by HM Government to provide film

classification certificates, how can you justify a fee of 1/20 to 1/30 of a low budget film

costs as appropriate?
 

Surely, you can double the fee for films over £100,000, (or other cut-off point) and waive or reduce the fees for films

made with a budget below that. As a monopoly with sole UK jurisdiction over classification for films

shown in the UK, this is easily within your remit. It would cause no concern to larger budgeted films, and would act

as a positive incentive to new talent and the British Film Making Industry at large.
 

An on-line petition has been created and is being circulated, aimed at asking the Government to explore the reduction

of fees for low budget Independent UK film makers.
 

We are optimistic you will take action now rather than wait for Government pressure as a result of petitioning.
