Is the potential power of online distribution for independent filmmakers a hype or a much-needed reality? How can independent producers maximise online platforms for commercial viability, and what are the various models available? How does online distribution for even niche art-house films and television productions provide a long-term solution to reach wider and more engaged audiences in the MENA region? Under the Milky Way CEO Pierre Alexandre Labelle, Front Row Filmed Entertainment Managing Director Gianluca Chakra, and Iflix Head of Middle East and North Africa Nader Sobhan offer their take on the direction of the digital film distribution value chain and how independent producers can best use emerging platforms to finance productions and recoup their investment.
