West Hartford, CT, United States, 2007/01/11 - MyMovieNetwork.com and ReelNow.com announce partnership between the two services. “Reel of the Month” will be the initial outcome of the partnership.
MyMovieNetwork.com and ReelNow.com are announcing a partnership agreement starting January 1, 2007 to support upcoming film makers by providing an avenue that will help them showcase their films to a wider audience on the web.
As part of this partnership we are inviting filmmakers to participate in a monthly “Reel of the Month” contest held on MyMovieNetwork.com. The winner of the contest gets a premiere for the winning entry on ReelNow.com/.
Winners are chosen monthly on MyMovieNetwork.com via public voting open to all logged in users and ReelNow.com members subject to final approval by ReelNow.com. Once a winner is selected Reel Now will approach them to submit a high quality version of their movie for a premiere on ReelNow.com. The ReelNow.com premieres are seen by Faculty and Staff from Film Schools around the United States, various Film Festivals, and Film Production Companies.
“ReelNow.com is going to give our film makers the ability to showcase their work in a high quality format, this should be a welcome change for independent film makers,” said Clint Mazur, MyMovieNetwork CEO.
“I’m excited to work with the MyMovieNetwork.com team to create and offer innovative services to support upcoming talented filmmakers who truly deserve credit. With our partnership, we will help filmmakers to showcase their movies to a much larger audience on the web,” said Kevin Dalvi, Reel Now CEO.
Launched in 2006, MyMovieNetwork is a unique online community that provides tools for filmmakers to showcase their work around the world by posting their films and portfolios as well as, learn from, network and collaborate with fellow movie makers. All members and visitors can watch, critique and rate submitted content based on its quality while at the same time enjoy the entertainment provided to them for free. MyMovieNetwork runs contests to find the best filmmakers, provides tools for scouting, blogging and linking to personal film archives. We provide affiliations for film schools and film clubs so all their members and work can congregate in one place. In addition each user can create a studio where all their films, cast and crew are associated with the studio.
Reel Now is an entertainment portal for High Definition Movie Trailers. It contains over 300 trailers of which over 95% are in High-Definition. Reel Now works with major film studios in Hollywood along with many independent studios to obtain high-quality trailers for upcoming films from around the world.
