First revenue-sharing, piracy-protected festival for filmmakers launched

filmrollAn independent film distribution company New Hollywood Entertainment™ has announced the launch of the first revenue-sharing, full-length film festival distribution model for filmmakers – the NUHO Online Film Festival™.

The NUHO Online Festival is open for entries now, and will run from February 7th through February 28th, 2014.

The festival offers a whole new experience for both filmmakers and audiences alike. Indie filmmakers benefit from unique profit sharing, rare exposure to a worldwide audience, one-click crowd funding opportunities, exposure to agents, distributors, and other industry professionals, all without having to spend money on travel costs or marketing.

“We are offering everything other film festivals offer – where you watch films, stream live events, attend panel discussions and meet other filmmakers – the only thing we can’t provide is a cocktail,” Keith Mitchell, CEO of New Hollywood Entertainment, said.

“NUHO is founded by filmmakers for filmmakers and we have created an amazing showcase platform for you to discover the best and brightest of the film community,” Mitchell added.

“The festival business is a necessary spoke in the wheel of film distribution, however, when the festival benefits the hosts more than the filmmakers that is wrong. We offer filmmakers a friendly site where everybody succeeds.”

Films are only screened for the duration of the festival, as not to cannibalize the value for distributors, and NuHo’s state of the art encryption technology ensures there are no piracy issues.

New Hollywood Entertainment has acquired the film “Dirty: Platinum Edition,” a documentary chronicling the life and legacy of Ol’ Dirty Bastard, a founding member of Wu-Tang Clan, which will premiere at the NUHO Online Film Festival’s launch party on November 15, 2013 at the historic Brooklyn Academy of Music.
