Europa Distribution Launches Partnership with Distrify Media for VOD Platform

Independent film distribution network Europa Distribution

has announced a partnership with online tools provider
Distrify Media

to enable the 150 members of the network to build their own VOD platform.

Launched during this year’s Berlinale, the partnership will see Distrify Media providing
independent distributors members of the network

their distribution plan

for free, as well as guidance and support.


“We are pleased to partner with Europa Distribution and to help building a bridge between distributors and digital distribution and marketing”, says
Distrify Media CMO Kobi Shely. ”Video on demand is a huge and fast-growing segment in Europe, and Distrify Media is leading innovative new ways of making
films accessible to millions of audience in 161 countries. Our partnership with Europa Distribution grants us the unique opportunity offering our users to
watch some of Europe’s best independent films. We look forward to expanding our relationship with Europa Distribution in the coming months.”

Always favoring exchange and curious for new discoveries, Europa Distribution received positive feedback on Distrify Media from some of its members during
San Sebastian workshop: this is why the network decided to get in touch with Distrify Media to make their online tool accessible for all its distributors
members. “This new partnership will enable our members to test new methods born with the digital era. In these changing times, it is important to develop
promotional tools to help improving the circulation of films and reaching audiences”, says Europa Distribution general manager Christine Eloy. The
association also plans to welcome Distrify Media in future events, in order to share their expertise on building online audience and to familiarize the
distributors with this new tool.
