You may be using services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Hotstar, but a new platform has also come up to compete with them. Its name is Cinemapreneur.
At a film bazaar, if 300 films come, 15 get a theatrical release, 10 go to Netflix, five to Amazon, so what happens to the rest?
The idea is to celebrate festivals as soon as they end by bringing some of those films to those who can’t go there,” says Gaurav Raturi, 35, who, along with Rupinder Kaur, 35, founded the OTT platform. Raturi’s Filmbooth used to organize shorts and docu festivals in Delhi from 2008-12.
With Cinemapreneur, independent filmmakers have the option to release their films virtually without having to wait for festivals or splurge on renting theaters.
- Filmmakers will be able to show their films through the website Cinemapreneur.com
- They will also get some part of the revenue from ticket sales.
- Digital mediums like ‘Amazon Prime Video’ and ‘Netflix’ will get a tough competition.
- New filmmakers will no longer have to rely on mainstream OTT platforms to showcase their films.
