The Mission

Openfilm is changing the world of online video entertainment.
Whether it's an animated short, comedy, documentary or other type of
film, we are THE source for the highest quality video content on the
Our Focus
The site showcases a fast-growing collection of high quality
live-action and animated films displayed in high resolution. Openfilm
provides a venue for users to watch premium video content, as well as
for filmmakers to exhibit their works, and to enjoy a full-featured,
social networking forum between viewers and creators.

The Focus
Openfilm is focused on 'user-generated films' - original, high-quality
live-action and animated videos with high production values and
artistic merit, from shorts and web series to feature-length films. The
site is closing the gap created by sites where anyone can upload
anything and sites that primarily showcase Hollywood studio

Content Selection

The site's community of independent filmmakers is growing very rapidly
with some of the most prominent names in the world of web video joining
the ranks.

Openfilm welcomes all submissions, but screens each video for
technical and production quality. Openfilm's in-house production staff,
which also produces original web shows that appear on the site,
processes all approved submissions to ensure high quality playback.

Openfilm already features many of the Internet's highly popular
viral videos in high resolution, from award-winning animated shorts to
live action videos of different genres and length. The site currently
offers over 1,300 original short films of all genres on more than 300
channels featuring independent filmmakers, production studios, film
festivals and film schools including Vancouver Film School, Greater
Philadelphia Student Film Festival and many others.

Openfilm offers a 50/50 advertising revenue sharing program to all
content providers. The website's limited amount of selected content
will enable the best producers' works to finally stand out.

User Experience

Openfilm achieves the best user experience by presenting all videos
in a large, high-definition player. The site's classification of
content as either "video" or "animation" makes it very easy for viewers
to find what they're looking for. Users also have the ability to browse
content by film genre, such as Action or Video Art.

Attention is also given to details that are often ignored on other
video sharing sites: thumbnail control, transcribing full credits from
the videos, generating subtitles and translation dubs in English and
Spanish, inclusion of production photos and multiple thumbnails, and
