Enjoyed working with the team at Distribber. They are very knowledgable, always helpful and available to communicate
Jon Long Producer/Director The Search for Freedom
If you want to be in complete control of your own film's destiny, there's no better option than Distribber. Within days of talking with them, they quickly got our film accepted and scheduled for release on iTunes, and it quickly climbed to #1 on the doc bestseller list in 4 countries! Even better, after the affordable flat fee, we kept all the revenue. They managed the entire process efficiently and with complete transparency. I can't see doing it any other way in the future.
Steve Yu, DirectorThe Resurrection of Jake The Snake
In the complicated and cut-throat world of distribution, it was a true pleasure using Distribber for our film An Honest Liar. They went above and beyond our expectations in being helpful, responsive, and open about the process. I would not hesitate to recommend them to other filmmakers.
