EFilm marketplace puts focus on indie filmmakers

July 16, 2004

What started as one filmmaker's frustration turned into a place to buy, sell and auction movies and screenplays. Electronic Film Market Online, which launched last week, is a direct result of its founder and president Oliver Robins trying to get distribution for his own movies. (Chris Marlowe) (to read the full article, go to Hollywoodeporter.com)
eFilm Market Online    "The marketplace for your media products"   

Now that you've screened your feature or short film at the festivals, you're probably wondering, "How am I going to take it to the next level -- getting my movie into the theaters or video stores for the world to see?"  eFilm Market Online wants to make that happen for you!    

Our team at eFilm Market Online wants your input on how well out website works and what we can do to make the experience more enjoyable.  Our goal is to build a website that is easy to use and customized to fit your needs as filmmakers. 

By listing your film at eFilm Market Online, you will receive a FREE turnkey website that can promote your feature or short film without the hassle of creating and managing a private website for 2 months.   After you list your film on the site, give out your film's product page URL to anyone who needs to see your movie!  Then, create auctions for the specific license to which you want to sell, (eg.  Video - France, All Rights - United States, etc.)

The eFilm Market Online website is a place where all industry professionals can come together to preview, research, buy, and sell all types of filmed products.  Listed titles have on-going exposure to global buyers at a fraction of established market costs. 

As a filmmaker, you will be able to upload all of the promotional material that would be shown at a traditional film market -- your movie's trailer, poster, publicity photos, reviews, screenplay, full-length screener, and more!   eFilm Market Online is extremely versatile and is designed to fit your needs.   You get to decide what you want industry pros to see -- the trailer and poster, the feature "screener", or everything you have to offer.  And it takes less then 10 minutes to get your product set up, (depending on your Internet connection speed).

And the best part it's free for 2 months from the date of your film's listing on the Site....with no obligation, or credit card required.

Too bad you missed her for RTU. That would've been neat.

Barnara Ess teaches photography at a couple of colleges in the New York area. Gail Vachon is a filmmaker and graphic artist in Brooklyn, if I recall. She has a website. Her daughter is a filmmaker, too. We touch briefly on the Y Pants in Rock That Uke. We communicated with Barbara Ess about being interviewed, but she was overextended enough that it never panned out. You can buy their collected works on CD, though, and there's a fair amount of phase-shifted electric uke in it. It's a cool album.

Thanks for the update! Any uke on the 2001 CD? Is it still in print? Gary

Some Googling suggests that Barbara Ess is still, happily for us all, artistically active, apparently with her pinhole photography. Last year I also picked up her 2001 CD with Peggy Awesh, Radio Guitar on Ecstatic Peace, in which Ess plays guitar and Awesh plays radio. Nice atmospherics.
