Crowdfunding platform Indiegogo announced a partnership with Vimeo last Saturday at Sundance that will make the video-hosting site the preferred distribution platform for films funded on Indiegogo. As part of the deal, Vimeo has committed one million dollars to a “creator fund” for Indiegogo projects, which will match dollar-for-dollar certain film fundraising campaigns in exchange for exclusive distribution on Vimeo on Demand.
Additionally, Indiegogo will join the newly-launched Vimeo On Demand Publisher Network, with a dedicated VOD storefront on Indiegogo’s site featuring titles funded by Indiegogo campaigns available for purchase. Vimeo will also promote Indiegogo titles on their own website.
Here are some of the benefits that will be available to Indiegogo film campaigners who choose to distribute via Vimeo on Demand:
