Filmhub's Distribution Process in 7 Steps

Filmhub has made the acquisition and distribution process simple and easy so you can keep making films. Here are the steps your film takes from upload to payment.

  1. We acquire your title and you upload your assets
    • Once you submit, our in-house Quality Control (QC) team will thoroughly review your title (typically within 3-5 business days) to verify all technical requirements have been met. We’ll email and help you through any issues to make sure your assets are ready to deliver to Channels once our sales team sells licenses to your title.
    • See How To Submit your Title to QC  to upload your videos and other required assets according to Filmhub's Asset Requirements.
  2. We pitch your title to channels
    • Once your title is acquired by Filmhub and all assets have cleared QC, our sales team reviews your film to gather insight on what characteristics they can use to pitch to channels. We know what channels are looking for, so we can help your film find the right channels. Ultimately the licensing decision is up to each channel, but we advise them along the way.

  1. We deliver your title's asset package
    • When a channel licenses your title, we immediately process, package, and deliver all the assets according to their requirements. We’ll update your dashboard, so you know when your title has been licensed by a channel.

  2. Channels take your title live to customers
    • After a title is delivered, the channel goes through its own internal processes to take your title to its customers. This process is entirely out of Filmhub's hands, and the go-live time varies from channel to channel. This process can take anywhere from 48 hours to 12 weeks. Unfortunately, channels do not report to us when a title goes live.

  3. Channels report your title's performance
    • Channels report performance stats to Filmhub after a title starts generating revenue. The amount of data and the reporting frequency varies from channel to channel, but we update your Performance Insights with all data we obtain from channels. In other words, you see everything that we do.

  4. Channels pay Filmhub
  5. Filmhub pays you
    • We collect, audit, and process payments from all our channels. We take 20% of the revenue your title collected and post 80% to your Earnings. No “hidden accounting,” we’re committed to full transparency and the success of our filmmakers.
