Our motivation is to provide independent filmmakers freedom and means to produce and sell movies outside the existing film industry. Hollywood-like movie production and distribution is full of intermediaries that control major aspects of the creative work and keep most of the profit; translated in today's lack of refreshing stories, stocked in sequels, remakes and reboots.

Where our ideology stands.
Filmgrid will maintain an exclusive Production Fund for financing independent movie projects. Winning creative ideas will be chosen by Filmgrid users, who after evaluating the projects and their participants, may cast their vote.
Creative Teams that don’t have access to the budget necessary for the production of their movie, can make use of the Presale option to complete the production budget and begin to obtain an income on the day of the film’s Premiere release.
Another option which a Creative Team can choose to finance their project is the Production Pool, which gives platform users the opportunity to take part in the financing of a film, in exchange for a percentage of the project's revenue.
An exclusive sale of the film that includes bonus material, available a few months before the regular offer and for a limited time, it can only be purchased with Filmpass Token.
In this regular offer, the sale price is set automatically according to the duration of the film in minutes; the Base Price per Minute is determined by Filmgrid.
A ticket for unlimited playback of a film during a 48 hours period, it applies for movies already in the regular offer. The rental price is based upon movie duration in minutes, the same way the regular sale price.
