IndiePix Partners Dogwoof

An Internet-based distributor of Independent Films, IndiePix, has announced a strategic partnership with Dogwoof, the UK film distributor specialising in Independent Films and world cinema. As part of its strategy to widen the reach of Independent Film, this alliance will enable IndiePix to extend its film distribution across the UK and enable Dogwoof to distribute its titles into America.
The partnership provides significant opportunities for each distributor to dramatically extend its industry and consumer links. In addition, this alliance provides a framework on which other strategic relationships can be built as this collaboration continues to grow globally.
As part of the agreement, Dogwoof will promote IndiePix's leading titles across the UK through a variety of distribution formats including theatrical screenings, DVD sales, TV contracts and online distributions.
IndiePix currently has over 3,000 titles within its film catalogue and will work with Dogwoof to build a portfolio of titles for the UK audience.
The controversial documentary 'End of America', based on the book by author Naomi Wolf, will be the first IndiePix title to go-live in the UK through Dogwoof.
The film has drawn mass audiences across the US and is expected to repeat its performance in Europe, when it is released in the UK in January.
At the same time, Dogwoof will be in a position to acquire broader rights and step up its offers for UK titles.
"IndiePix is especially pleased with the opportunity to build a special offering of UK filmmakers around this joint distribution initiative," noted Ryan Harrington, Head of IndiePix Studios. "Dogwoof has great taste and judgement in the films they are offering, and it is clear that we are simply kindred spirits in our approaches to Independent Film."
Andy Whittaker, Chief Executive Office, Dogwoof commented: "We are pleased to launch this venture with IndiePix, as both companies see a positive outlook for Independent Film generally, and the documentary sector in particular.
"With a competitive cost structure, a growing audience, as well as greater connectivity to digital content, this partnership will help us to continue developing a strong offering for both filmmakers and consumers alike."
Throughout 2008 IndiePix has established a number of important industry partnerships as it continued to pioneer new and unique Independent Film distribution models.
These include Snag Films, for movie streaming, and Apple iTunes, to enable film fans to download films straight to their iPod or iPhone.
