We want to show your films!
SteepEdge enables you to showcase your films and generate extra income from your work. This may be as an additional outlet and cash stream to your own website and DVD sales or as the main outlet for films that are not on sale via normal distribution channels (this could be particularly the case with older films.)
Increasingly films are made without TV or cinema commissions and are only seen at film festivals or distributed by a maze of individual websites. SteepEdge provides a one-stop website focussing on mountain sports such as climbing, mountaineering, skiing, trekking, exploration, polar exploits, kayaking / white water pursuits, B.A.S.E. and para-gliding, mountain biking, mountain culture, environment and wildlife.
How do I get my films on SteepEdge?
We urge you to contact us if you have a film that you think might be suitable within the genre and community that SteepEdge covers. If in doubt get in touch! We are keen to show films from the past as well as contemporary material. Please email email@example.com
Specifications of films
The most important aspect is that you must have the rights to distribute the film on the Internet. This also includes music rights. The films must be of good quality and with no 'adult' content. At present we require films to be in English or have English subtitles (we hope to introduce German language films in the near future). We will view your films and if deemed acceptable, we will discuss contracts and financials in confidence. We will also send you details on which formats we accept and how you should submit the film.
Do filmmakers have special membership?
You register for SteepEdge membership as normal. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and title it 'Film Maker'. The SteepEdge Administrator will cross reference you with your films and grant you special privileges.
What can I access once registered as a filmmaker?
Once registered as a filmmaker you will have access to the analytics area within your account. This contains a list of your films sold on SteepEdge. You can view or download reports as a CSV and filter by dates, film title etc. There will be no financial information on this report, but it will provide a convenient mechanism to monitor sales on the website.
