Un accord important vient d'être signé entre et withoutabox, les deux leaders de la communauté des festivals

Un peu d'exercice pour votre anglais?

Withoutabox, Inc., the media company comprising the world’s largest independent film network and, the leading information and practical application services for the film festival community, have struck a strategic alliance aimed at providing an unprecedented range of marketing solutions to film festival professionals both in North America and across Europe and Asia. Withoutabox CEO and co-founder David Straus and CEO Malo Girod de l'Ain announced the association today, after officially kicking it off at the annual International Film Festival Summit this week at the Luxor Hotel and Resort in Las Vegas.

Through this alliance, the two companies will offer a suite of marketing services and information sources for filmmakers and film festivals around the world. Withoutabox Submissions, the Company’s proprietary signature product and’s extensive news resources and long time International presence provides combined resources that allow film festivals and filmmakers alike to fully promote and monetize their work.

Filmmakers will be able to submit their films to festivals using the Withoutabox submission engine directly from the website. The association will also allow an ongoing information exchange among festival directors, staff, and filmgoers through Withoutabox’s message boards and the Company’s Audience social networking platform.

In turn, will provide Withoutabox with up-to-the-minute news from festivals in Europe and beyond, and will serve as a conduit for filmmakers and festivals to join Withoutabox and reap the benefits of Audience. With more than 100,000 filmmakers and over 700 partner festivals — plus a total of over 2,000 festivals in its database — Withoutabox is the most significant network of independent filmmakers and festivals in the world.

“This is a natural alliance for us, one that allows us to provide even greater services for our member filmmakers and festivals,” Mr. Straus noted. “For years, has been a go-to site for anyone interested in news about festivals, and we’re thrilled that we can now give their users access to our Submissions system.”

“Our alliance with Withoutabox provides international film festivals from our network with greater access to a wider range of independent film than ever before,” Mr. Girod de L’Ain said. COO Bruno Chatelin added: “This alliance of two industry leaders offers the market new and improved solutions. This is a win-win-win situation, for, Withoutabox and the festival community.”
