OpenIndie is an independent film distribution platform that endeavors to change the way we connect to films. It allows audiences to learn about new films, engage with the creators, and be alerted to screenings in their community. Fans are further empowered to host films, sell DVDs and distribute downloads, making OpenIndie a vital alternative to the faltering system of studio distribution.
The idea was born out of filmmaker Arin Crumley’s innovative self-distribution of the film Four Eyed Monsters and was brought to life by developer Kieran Masterton. Money to build a beta version of the site was provided by 265 online backers who donated over $12,000.
The project currently seeks:
Open source software developers who work with the raspberry pi
Ruby on rails developers
