Linda Nelson is the co-founder of Indie Rights. A subsidiary of Nelson Madison Films, Indie Rights is a direct distributor and technology partner for filmmakers. Based on the experience of its founders, Linda Nelson and Michael Madison, the need for a new type of distribution for independent films is evident. Thousands of great independent films are made each year and never find an audience. They play at film festivals all over the world and are never discovered by the sales agents and distributors that frequent only the top tier festivals, such as Sundance and Cannes. These festivals used to be filled with fresh original voices from new talent, but now act as advertising vehicles for "classic divisions" of major studios or showcases for already established actors, directors and producers. Film markets, like AFM, are too costly and complex for most independent filmmakers.
Indie Rights offers distribution and technology services to filmmakers who have feature-length films that have not yet found an audience. We also arrange licensing of film content to qualified buyers for broadcast and cable TV. Finding an audience for your independent films has never been easier. New ditigal distribution platforms exist that will allow you to benefit directly from your work. Indie Rights was formed to help you do this. Much of the work can be done by you, but if you want or need help distributing your film, we can provide that help.
Indie Rights specializes in digital placement of movies and has excellent studio level partnerships and relationships with all the major platforms so that your film can be available to audiences through such popular platforms as MGo, Google Play, Roku, iTunes, Hulu, Playstation, YouTube Movie Rentals, Snagfilms, and Vudu as well as the most popular DTC apps for Facebook. Our services are non-exclusive, we charge no up-front fees and we work with all our filmmakers to educate them about the use of the most innovative marketing and social media tools available for marketing independent film.
