Kaneva, pioneer of the world’s first digital entertainment marketplace, and Ideas United, founders of Campus MovieFest (CMF), the world’s largest student movie-making events, have joined forces to launch Independence MovieFest (iMF) at www.independencemoviefest.com. iMF is the world’s first and only film festival to host all submitted movies online – from shorts to full features — in their entirety and in DVD quality.
In contrast to the traditional film festival model where the vast majority of submitted films never get the opportunity to be viewed by festival goers, iMF is a global, online viewing venue where all filmmakers have the opportunity to have their work seen and recognized. iMF also provides a dynamic, online community where fans can participate in the judging process along with a panel of distinguished judges.
“At Kaneva, our mission is to empower filmmakers to connect directly with their audience,” says Christopher W. Klaus, founder and CEO of Kaneva, Inc. “Kaneva provides the technological expertise that makes it possible for filmmakers to easily upload their work and immediately have a global audience. We are thrilled to be launching Independence MovieFest with our partners, Ideas United.”
