Indiepix Films Partners with Winter Film Awards to offer “Indiepix Vision Award”
Rewarding Singular Filmmakers with Distribution Across All Platforms,
IndiePix Offers this Award for Winning Filmmakers at Winter Film Awards #2016.
IndiePix Films brings film lovers the very best of independent cinema from around the world and has been in the business of doing so since 2004. The company is fiercely committed to sharing new cinematic voices and experiences across all avenues of theatrical and home entertainment distribution. To further its focused mission, IndiePix has created the “IndiePix Vision Award” through which it endeavors to partner with film festivals and discover distinctive, important new voices in cinema.
IndiePix believes visibility and accessibility are key to a film’s life. Thus, filmmaker-recipients of the “IndiePix Vision Award” will be given an international distribution platform, potentially including release on DVD and VOD, as well as other digital opportunities. Aside from assisting with the implementation of a cohesive distribution plan, IndiePix will also support the awarded film with marketing and promotion, valuable exposure across IndiePix’s branded sites, newsletters and social media.
“As the world of entertainment continues to fragment, consumers are offered a staggering number of options. IndiePix remains committed to finding filmmakers with a unique POV, helping them find a niche targeted audience,” says Jordan Mattos, Director of Acquisitions and Programming at IndiePix. “The IndiePix Vision Award was created to make that process as turnkey as possible and we’re thrilled to partner with select festivals to uncover unique film talents and share these with film lovers all over the world.”

About Winter Film Awards
Winter Film Awards is an all-volunteer women and minority-run 501(c)3 organization founded in 2011 by NYC filmmakers and arts enthusiasts. It was built with the dream of making indie film more accessible to the public and providing driven, talented artists the opportunity to break through competitive barriers to establish meaningful careers in film. Some of our filmmakers have years of experience; others are so new to filmmaking that our Festival is the very first time that they see their work on a big screen.
The 5th Annual WINTER FILM AWARDS Independent Film Festival runs Feb 18-26 2015 with jam-packed days of screenings, networking events and after-parties. The event offers something for everyone, highlighting the dynamic range of storytelling the independent filmmaking community has to offer. Among the 86 Official Selections to be screened at Cinema Village in the heart of the East Village (22 East 12th Street, New York, NY 10003), is a diverse mixture of 12 documentaries, 34 shorts, 10 narrative features, 9 animations, 7 music videos, 9 horror films and 5 web series, including 8 student films, 36 female directors and representation from 26 countries.
