Filmhub accepts a wide range of film, TV, and video content regardless of format, genre, topic, language, runtime, or perceived production quality. We celebrate creativity and give all content creators equal access to Filmhub. Breaking from traditional industry practices, Filmhub has no gatekeepers.

Our vision is that only the audience should curate. We do not reject any content based on our subjective judgment and preference.

However, we do have a basic Content Policy in place in an effort to keep Filmhub a trustworthy source for our Channel Partners to find content that fits their audience. Content violating the below policies is not accepted on Filmhub.

For more information on the legal usage of copyrighted and trademarked see here.

Minimum Duration

Your title must be longer than 2 minutes. This includes Episodes in a Show.

Pornography

Filmhub does not accept explicit video content made “for the exclusive purpose of sexual arousal”. (Wikipedia)

Violent or Graphic Content

Similarly, content that depicts extreme or real-life violence in sensational, gratuitous ways may not be accepted.

Unlawful Content

We respect freedom of speech, but content that promotes, endorses, or glorifies crime, terrorism, hatred against certain individuals or groups, or other illegal activities, may not be accepted.

Misinformation

We do not allow titles that promote unsubstantiated conspiracy theories or inaccurate information.

Promotional Content

Content made to promote a non-profit or for-profit business or brand is not accepted.

Home Videos

By its definition, “an amateur video made in the home or documenting a family event” may not be accepted. We understand that your work may have a home video quality for a limited budget or creative reasons, but a clip of your friend's wedding party shot for the sole purpose of documentation, for example, is not eligible.

Visual Experience

Your title must rely on a visual experience. Pure still images with music or a single person speaking do not make your title a visual experience. Video Blogs and How-To Videos are not allowed.

Music Videos

While we love music videos, we are focused on cinema-type content and do not accept music videos.

Bonus Feature Content

While we greatly appreciate bonus features, we do not accept extra supplemental content as stand-alone titles. This includes making-ofs, outtakes, commentaries, deleted scenes, alternate endings, bloopers, clips, or other behind-the-scenes bonus material. Bonus features are usually reserved for physical media extras accompanying the main content of a DVD, HD-DVD, and BluRay.

3D or VR Content

We currently do not accept content intended to be experienced as 3D or VR that requires glasses and/or devices with compatible technology to view in its intended presentation. We only accept 2D (flat) content that is intended to be viewed without the use of specialized devices or glasses. The 2D content viewing experience should not be affected by any overlapping images, blur, or distortion produced from the original 3D/VR deliberate effects. 3D animation intended to be presented in 2D is acceptable.

Public Domain Content

We accept public domain content on a first-in basis.

One Version per Piece of Content

We only accept one version of each piece of content. You cannot take a Movie and break it into a Show and have 2 separate titles. You also cannot submit separate edits or cuts of a title. If a title has been remade and fully re-shot with a new cast, locations, etc. that is okay.

Anthology Films

Films that are individual works but tie together with overarching themes, locations, etc... must be uploaded as separate Movies. For a collection of Short Films, they should be uploaded as a Show with individual Episodes or combined into a Movie with ONE (1) set of end credits at the tail. No mention of episodes are allowed in Movies.


As long as you don't violate these policies, you can submit your content. There is no need for any "approval" requests.

We also want to help you, the creators, to increase your chance of being picked up by the channels as wide as possible. Our policies are based on our experience with countless buyer transactions. The more you follow them, we believe the higher your chances of wide distribution are.
