Game On! 5th Annual IndieBoom Fest Rewards Artists Who Rack Up The Most Plays
Indie Filmmakers and Musicians compete for cash and prizes at the 2021/22 IndieBoom Film + Music Festival. From Jan. 1 - 16, 2022, all selections are free to stream online, on Roku, Amazon FireTV, AppleTV and more.
Unlike most online festivals, IndieBOOM is all about closing the gap between creators and audiences. A jury of industry pros programs the selections, then the game begins! Artists promote their work on social media to encourage people to watch and listen. Streaming stats determine the winners in each category, including Comedy, Drama, Documentary, Horror, and Fan Film (which showcases fan-made tributes to icons like Ghostbusters and Star Trek.) The most-streamed film of the fest wins the Grand Prize of $500, and the top song wins $250. The prize money helps creators realize their next projects.
Each film gets its own custom web page with built-in social media tools, making it easy and fun for viewers to interact. Films are always 100% free to watch (https://www.indieboomff.com/
"IndieBoom is all about boosting the profiles of indie artists to give them support, confidence and help grow their audience. It's the perfect festival event for creators who understand how important self-promotion is in today's industry, and for fans who can participate and support independent artists no matter where they are," said festival co-founder Anthony DeVito.
