Crowdfunding website Indiegogo has designated Vimeo as its preferred film distribution partner as part of a new partnership which sees the video sharing platform commit to a creator fund for select Indiegogo campaigns in return for exclusive distribution via Vimeo on Demand.
Commenting on the tie-up Slava Rubin, CEO of Indiegogo said: “Mirroring the diversity of our open platform, we are proud to support an incredibly robust community of filmmakers across multiple genres. With the addition of Vimeo as a distribution partner, it is now easier than ever for filmmakers using Indiegogo, to pursue their passions, receive funding, garner global exposure, and deliver their work directly to their fans."
Kerry Trainor, CEO, Vimeo added: “This partnership highlights both Vimeo and Indiegogo’s continued support of independent filmmakers on a global level, and provides Indiegogo’s community of creators an opportunity to be exposed to an even wider audience via Vimeo’s transactional VOD platform.”
