Ever been in the mood for a movie but can't find something good? We feel like that all the time. 

We love our Netflix but sometimes we want something different. We want cool short films so we can watch them in the checkout line. We want controversial films so we can bring them up over dinner. We want foreign films so we can dream of far-away places. We want the audience-award winners, the most advanced animations, the craziest sci-fis, the heart-wrenching documentaries, and we want to watch them anywhere, anytime.

We want to make that easy for you.

We are building an app to make discovering and sharing independent films easier than ever. With the IndieFlix app, you will become a part of a film community that spans the entire globe.  With our app you can discover awesome new films every day, share your favorites with your friends, write reviews and have conversations about the movies worth talking about.

IndieFlix is an online movie streaming company, dubbed the “Netflix of independent film” by Variety. With an IndieFlix subscription, you have access to our entire library with thousands of shorts, documentaries, features and series. Right now, you can watch IndieFlix on any internet capable device as well as Xbox360 and Roku, but we want to take your experience one step further. 

Around the world, people are doing more discovering and viewing on our phones than anywhere else. We want to put everything IndieFlix has to offer in the palm of your hand and curate an independent film discovery experience like nothing else out there.

2 minutes till the bus comes? We’ve got an awesome horror short for you. Brownies in the oven for the next 15? Check out a brand new mini-series. Girl’s night and you want to impress everyone? This foreign romance explores love and lust through the Scottish countryside- it’s a sure knockout. 

You can browse our discover page during the day, add movies to your queue and if you’re too busy to watch right now, they’ll be waiting for you when you get home. IndieFlix is accessible from anywhere in the world, allowing you to see what your friends are watching and always stay connected.

And that’s not even the best part. As a part of this film community, you will be actively supporting the creators of each and every film you watch. With our Royalty Pool Minutes (RPM) model, filmmakers get paid for every minute their film gets watched on IndieFlix, both through the app and through the website. The more we support independent filmmakers, the more quirky, heartfelt independent films will be created, and the more we

will have to discover. It’s a win-win!

The thing we love most about movies is that they inspire conversation. A good movie isn't one that sells out at the box office. It's not even one that features big names from Hollywood. A good movie makes us question ourselves and those around us. It promotes thoughtfulness, curiosity and community. A good movie doesn’t have to be feature-length. Sometimes the most impactful films are just 2-3 minutes long. Sometimes a good movie just needs to be discovered.

That's why we are running this campaign. We want you to have best experience discovering great films and the easiest way to share them with your friends. And we need your help to make it happen!


Founded by filmmakers, IndieFlix strives to connect great films with an audience and support the artists who create those films. We are creating an app for iOS (and then Android) that will do just that. We are asking for your help to raise $28,000 so we can build something that changes the way we not only discover film, but connect with each other. The money will go to the technical development of the app as well as designing its look, layout, and user-experience.

Our focus is designing the best experience for you. That doesn't mean just putting thousands of movies in big channels and then forcing you to spend hours wading through it all. We want to create a curated experience that invites you to become a part of a film community. 

Watch an award winning short film.. and add your comments to the conversation. Watch a documentary.. and then click on an exclusive interview with the filmmaker to learn how their life has led them to create this specific story. Catch up on your cult classics. Explore a new genre you've never tried. Find your Dad’s new favorite film.. and be the one to introduce him to it! Let's start conversations, ignite passions, and empower each other to live deeply, viewing the world through the myriad lenses in film.

Last words:

We need your support to create this app. But, equally important are our cheerleaders; people who will spread the word. Share the video. Tell your friends. Join us in the making of a one-of-a-kind app that will help us all discover independent film and support the filmmakers who are creating it. Thank you so much for being a part of this campaign and a part of our community at IndieFlix.


With appreciation,

Now that you’ve seen who we are, we want to tell you about this little social experiment we started just a few weeks ago. It started with a big question- Who makes up the film community? What do you look like? What words do you live by? How can we celebrate you and your stories?

So, we teamed up with our amazing photographer friend, Coco, and started an experiment. We call it the Faces of IndieFlix...

FAQ's

1. When will the app be released?

Our team has already started building and designing the IndieFlix App. With your help, we will be able to speed up the creation process so that we can meet our goal of launching our brand new app this fall! We hope to give early access supporters first look at the app around September-October and launch globally soon after.

2. Is this just an iOS app?

Right now, we are just building the iOS app, but with our stretch goals, we will be able to move forward with an Amazon Fire app, Android app, and Windows tablet. We want the IndieFlix App to be available on every device with the best user-experience possible.

3.  What if I don't live in the U.S.?

The IndieFlix film community is a global community! Nearly all our films stream all over the world, so your IndieFlix subscription will never be blocked on a different IP address.

4.  Why is IndieFlix crowdfunding for this app?

Our goal for this app is to build a truly global film community and to connect independent filmmakers with a passionate and engaged audience to share their stories with. We are crowdfunding so that this app is built for the film community, by the film community. By running this campaign, we are inviting everyone to join our community and make it the incredible and inspiring place we get to enjoy every day.
