SUPPORTING FILMMAKERS IS OUR MISSION

Metro is dedicated to supporting Filmmakers with Promotion, Screenings, and Distribution. 

WE GET YOUR FILM SEEN, WITHOUT CONTRACTS OR FEES!

Enter our Festival, it's free for trailers, and very cheap for films ($4 min, $8 max.)  Fest Winners will then get the option to stream your content on our TV Channels via our Streaming services. That's free exposure, publicity and promotion of your Film, TV Show, Pilot, Web Series, or Trailer/Teaser to over 1 Million Subscribers on our SMART TV channels and APPS on Roku and Amazon Fire TV.

Q: Will 1 million people watch my film?  

A: Maybe, but it's most likely that about 50,000 views will accrue in a few months.  That's not bad, my filmmaking brother...

Consider how effective having your POSTER ART, FILM DESCRIPTION, and VIDEO will help to promote your work.  We'll even let you put your website URL on all this material.  You can check out our Connected TV-APPS on www.MoviesPlus.org but please click to secure your slot this year.


A SUCCESS STORY: HOW ALEX GOT HIS DISTRIBUTION DEAL

Alexander Pimentel, Director of "Down River" streamed his feature film on Metro's Connected TV Channel, "Movies Plus" on Amazon Fire TV. After 6 months and 70,000 downloads, Alex shared the news with a Venture capitalist who agreed to finance Alex's next feature film. Read the article at the following link.  http://moviesplus.org/images/alex-small-article.jpg  and recently Alex landed a deal with Green Apple Entertainment to distribute his movies on Hulu and other platforms.  THIS IS A DIRECT RESULT OF USING OUR SERVICES!

Biswanath Rath: "Such a memorable moment in the exciting journey of our Documentary 'Kotpad Weaving'! Received this beautiful Award from the festival authorities of 'Metro Film & TV Awards'! 1.5 years back, when we were shooting the documentary, all we wanted was to make the story of Kotpad Handloom known to the world. Today when the story gets recongised and awarded at USA, I think everyone associated with this documentary (directly/indirectly) has got a reason to cheer up, celebrate! Dedicating this award to 'Kotpad Dyers and Weavers'! Kudos! :) Tons of thanks Metro Film & TV Awards, Moviesplus Apps, Metro Film Festival! "
