Long-Time Quad Cinema President Elliott Kanbar Launches CINEMAflix Distribution Company

Long-Time Quad Cinema President Elliott Kanbar Launches CINEMAflix Distribution Company

For $12,000, your feature film can qualify for the Academy Awards.

The “Oscar Qualification Package” is just one of the many options provided by Cinemaflix Distribution, a new company founded by former Quad Cinemas president Elliott Kanbar and Donald Rabinovitch. Rather than being yet another distribution company, Cinemaflix is an all-in-one distribution team. For a flat fee (should your film be accepted), Cinemaflix’s in-house publicists and producers will market your film, represent it at festivals, help you secure multi-platform streaming deals and a theatrical release at a theater in New York or Los Angeles. You retain the rights to your film and whatever additional income it generates.

During his tenure at Quad Cinemas, Kanbar founded QuadFlix Select, a similar program that, for a flat fee, helps filmmakers screen (at Greenwich Village’s historic Quad Cinemas) and market their work, sell DVDs and find VOD contracts. QuadFlix Select also offers an “Oscar Qualifying Package.”

Kanbar is the author of self-distribution self-help book “You Finally Finished Your Film – Now What,” which is available on Amazon.
