IndieWire Breaks Traffic Record in August 2017

Since IndieWire joined PMC, traffic grew 120%.


IndieWire closed August with more than 20 million pageviews and over 8 million unique visitors, a record in our 21-year history.

That reflects 120 percent growth since we joined PMC in 2016. And all of that is due to our awesome team — a full-time editorial staff of 14 (the biggest in our history) and the fantastic support of our parent company, Penske Media.

Here’s some of the stories that readers loved:

This growth is a testament to what IndieWire is:  the voice of creative independence, with film, TV, and awards coverage that’s made for the industry as well as the fans.

The best part of all is after 21 years, we’ve only gotten started. We’re excited for the awards season ahead, and we’re already making big plans for 2018 and beyond.

So this is a big thanks to the entire IndieWire team — and to our readers, who literally make everything possible.
