Since 2008, Indiegogo has been the funding engine helping filmmakers around the world raise thousands of dollars for everything from passion projects to full-length award-winning features. Life ItselfDear White People, and A Girl Walks Home Alone are just a few examples. Our robust ecosystem helps to support the art of storytelling and film every step of the way – from funding to fulfillment to distribution.

Today, we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Vimeo – as our most recent addition to a host of services on Indiegogo designed to help provide the most robust end-to-end solution for filmmakers. As part of this new partnership, Vimeo will be putting up to a million dollars into films funding on Indiegogo.

This new partnership designates Vimeo as the preferred distribution platform for films funded on Indiegogo. Vimeo has also committed an ongoing creator fund specific to Indiegogo, which will match dollar for dollar for select Indiegogo film campaigns in exchange for exclusive distribution on Vimeo On Demand.



Additionally, Indiegogo will be joining Vimeo’s newly formed 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 create a dedicated Indiegogo VOD home on Vimeo featuring a rotating selection of Indiegogo campaign-backed films curated by Vimeo.

Film campaigners who choose to distribute their films on Vimeo On Demand will be able to tap into benefits not offered by any other crowdfunding platform: free fulfillment on all digital download perks, a discounted Vimeo PRO account, and inclusion in a featured “Indiegogo Funded Films” collection on Vimeo, which reaches over 170 million global users a month. Past Indiegogo campaigns that have used Vimeo as their distribution method include Video Game High School Season ThreeAngry Video Game Nerd: The Movie and Mad As Hell, which will be available next month on Vimeo.
