My Film Works, an online cinema platform for independent filmmakers is inviting original content from the region. The streaming portal based in Europe currently has more than 1,000 titles from filmmakers of 45 different countries streaming in 30 different languages as per Dubai-based founder Sanjay Das.
My Film Works is part of The Works Network (TWN) that is a vertically integrated media services network covering various verticals including creating campaigns such as the Yahlive launch that aired across the MENA region.
Content on My Film Works covers a wide range of genres including feature films, shorts, documentary, music videos and any other professionally produced film.
Das believes the portal responds to the needs of the MENA-based professional filmmaker looking for a viable global platform.
To draw an analogy My Film Works is LinkedIn and Vimeo combined. You create your page and upload your film. The filmmaker can then connect to his or her social media accounts including IMDB and most importantly link any funding campaign to the page. Uploading movies is free and in addition, we can offer the content in six languages including the original language, thus expanding the reach. Also, we actively engage on social media and the 225,000 followers we have on Facebook give our filmmakers added visibility.
In addition to offering a platform for filmmakers to showcase their work, My Film Works will be approaching television channels and online portals to market the content. The portal is also aiming to connect filmmakers and commercial brands with the idea to get brands to fund filmmakers or get filmmakers to make content for the brand, revealed Das.
A global platform, My Film Works will be actively seeking to expand into the Indian market in 2018.
