Elevating and Monetizing Short Films Globally

Showcase and monetize your short film worldwide with NetIndie. Gain immediate access to global distribution and revenue opportunities. More than a festival, it's your springboard to success.


How it works

All films that are accepted to the NetIndie film festival qualify to be included in the NetIndie

streaming library and may qualify for immediate monetization!

Selected qualified films may be included in our live screening events hosted in major cities across the united states, Canada and the UK.

The film festival has several showcases where qualifying films may be presented to the public and be recognized in our prizing categories.

Submissions are first screening for our panel of judges which includes several seasoned industry professionals. Qualifying films are included in our online festival.

At these events and online our audiences share their votes and feedback on the various films.

Based on audience feedback selected films are invited to screen at our live festival events taking place in selected theatres across the United States, Canada and the UK. The films

featuring at these venues will be considered the finalists for the awards that we share.

NetIndie hosts an awards ceremony once each year where the awards are given to the recipients. This award ceremony is open to the public and many of the award are presented by industry celebrities.
