The Film Fest On Your Phone: International Creators Use Social Media To Compete For Prizes In 3rd Annual Streaming IndieBOOM! Festival
Over 50 short films and series from all over the world have been selected for the 2019 IndieBOOM Festival, which streams free Dec. 20, 2019 to Jan. 5, 2020 online, on Roku, FireTV, Vimeo and more. Filmmakers promote on social media, and winners in each category are determined by viewing stats. The most-streamed title receives the grand prize of $500.
A panel of industry pros watched all entries and chose the slate of 55 indies. Each film gets its own custom web page with built-in social media tools, making it easy and fun for viewers to interact. IndieBOOM has launched all-new Roku and FireTV apps for 2019, and can also be watched on AppleTV and more via Vimeo. Films are always 100% free to watch and are invited to stay on the IndieBOOM site after the festival, giving them more exposure throughout the year.
"IndieBOOM is a unique concept that indie filmmakers really get," said co-founder Anthony DeVito. "They understand how important self-promotion is in today's industry, and they love that they can use their social media skills to energize — and expand — their fan base as they compete to win prizes that help them in their careers."
