Electronic Film Market Online, Inc. has announced the launch of the first Internet marketplace for worldwide buyers and sellers to search and market feature motion pictures, short films, and screenplays.
Never before has the global film community had an online marketplace to reach buyers in both the U.S. and all overseas territories. Previously, the only way a filmmaker or his/her representatives could effectively reach buyers was to attend an offline event. The idea of building an Internet film marketplace originated with eFilm Market Online’s founder and President, Oliver Robins, and his personal odyssey in selling his own film.
David A. Jablonski, an MIT graduate and computer programmer, helped Robins to make that vision possible. Jablonski and Robins worked together to design a Website that was easy to use, and accessible to all computer users, beginner or expert. On the eFilm Market website, sellers can upload all pertinent information to sell their film titles in a couple of minutes without having any advanced computer knowledge. And likewise, potential buyers, with a few key strokes, can preview all of the same information that they would find at an offline market, and bid for a film’s rights without ever leaving their chair.
Since the eFilm Market never closes, filmmakers and their representatives can make their films available to buyers from all over the world, making contact, through eFilm, with those whom they could not possibly have communicated offline. eFilm Market makes it possible for audiences to see films that otherwise might never have been commercially distributed.
