Cinematic Connection

INDIE SPARXS is an experiential and interactive multi-platform streaming app and distribution channel dedicated to independently produced film and TV. Here, creators can upload projects, connect with their audience, screen showings in private virtual rooms, and (best of all) earn money sharing their creations. Meanwhile, film and TV lovers can stream, comment, tag, and even donate to their favorite artists! We might be biased, but we think this constitutes a win-win for all.


INDIE SPARXS was created with two special audiences in mind...

creators

Independent Filmmakers, Producers, Artists

From amateur to auteur, our Creators supply the content and can opt to make money from their projects.

CINERS

Film/TV Lovers, Indie Enthusiasts, Streamers

Across the globe, Ciners (pronounced sinners) watch compelling programming and connect with community members.

Finding an audience for your indie project should be easy. After all, you’ve already depleted your blood, sweat, and tears (and maybe even sold your soul) in an effort to bring your vision to life. Simply upload your creation, meet approval guidelines, and start earning based on views.

As a Creator, you can opt to host monetized premiere parties, connect with fans through live streams in the Filmmakers’ Lounge, and meet other like-minded filmmakers. Did we mention you get to keep 80% of all your earnings?

Users who stream the content here share the honorary name of being called "Ciners" (haha, get it?). You don’t need to be an enthusiast or a film critic to join this club.

 A simple love for sitting on the couch and enjoying the moving picture is the common denominator among our community. In addition to streaming, you can choose to vote on your favorite films/shows, start a thread on the Forum, or interact with your favorite filmmakers.

“We wanted to create a place for untold, diverse, and original stories to come to life, while also providing independent filmmakers with a space to monetize their creations. As consumers and filmmakers, it was important for us to forge a central place for those who simply love to watch movies and those who love creating them.”

the forum

your opinion matters. be heard!

This is the place for Ciners to sin...AKA voice their opinions on all things film and tv, without threatening others. Talk about your favorite scenes and characters with other Ciners, or speak to a Creator about their experience making the film. Write a review or participate in compelling discussions if you so choose. Or, simply let a like or dislike do the talking. 

Really loved that one scene in that one film? Don’t like horror films? Want to rant about the difference between warm and cool light? Need help with the app?

Through a series of personality and in-the-moment quiz questions, you can narrow down the perfect home cinematic experience fit for the occasion!

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

MAKE THE INDIE MOVIE EXPERIENCE YOURS

Creators this one's for you! What do you do with your film when it’s finished the festival circuit? You can’t just leave it sitting on your harddrive! Upload it to your platform for the whole world to see, and give your friends and family the first look. Choose your ticket price ($2-$5), and invite your network for a virtual premiere of your show.

Viewers can comment and click on emojis throughout the screening to express their thoughts on the piece. After your monetized premiere party ends, choose to keep your project on the platform to reach a wider audience and continue receiving funds. Don’t forget, you keep 80% of revenues!

WATCHING A MOVIE IN A THEATER CAN BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER...WHY NOT RECREATE IT AT HOME?

CAN I UPLOAD MY FILM OR SHORT?

Creators can upload any project that has been screened at a film festival. Please allow 24 hours for the system to verify and process.

If the indie project (feature, short, TV series, animation) has not been accepted into a festival, creators may submit their project for our team to review. Please use our contact form, type "Project Upload Review" in the subject line, and indicate your role in the production/studio. Allow 3-5 business days for this process.
 
In addition to work that is not your own, pornographic content is strictly prohibited. If your project contains nudity, we reserve the right to label it as including such to make sure those streaming are aware before watching.

I HATE ADS. DO I HAVE TO WATCH ANY?

No ads in the paid version! And even as a free user, you will only be subject to viewing ads at the beginning of a showing, just like watching previews in a traditional theater. In the beta testing stage, you may see ads to make sure that the ad-supported tier of our platform is working properly.

CAN I BE A CREATOR AND A CINER?

Yes of course! If you do upload a project, you will be designated as a Creator, but that doesn’t stop you from simply streaming and enjoying the content.

IS THIS PLATFORM SPECIFIC TO ONE GENRE?

Nope. We welcome all sorts of genres.
