I started Film Grove LLC in March of 2017 while living in Las Vegas, Nevada. As a writer and an aspiring filmmaker I was frustrated and disillusioned by the challenges that I observed all independent filmmakers faced when they take their films to market. While a small number of independent filmmakers find success through submitting and screening their films at various film festivals I found that most filmmakers were only successful if they managed to negotiate the distribution of their film and self financed and crafted a multi-phase marketing plan prior to completing the final cut of their film. In today's current streaming content climate filming the movie isn't the most important part of the process anymore. If a film does not have distribution the chance of it being screened is slim to none. I wanted to offer a virtual platform that allowed for screening new films from emerging filmmakers and a way to host their content and build their audience without charging exorbitant fees just to serve as a hosting platform.
Film Grove is a local streaming channel and online film festival venue primarily located in the Southwest region of the United States. Our goal for creating this channel is to provide a platform for new and emerging women filmmakers and filmmakers of color.
We are committed to fostering partnerships with our content contributors by working directly with each and every once of them to create marketing plans that will grow and develop their fan base. Our five year goal is to build a subscriber and content creator network that delivers quality entertainment and high yield revenue streams by keeping overhead costs low and continually committing to improving our work flow process.
Film Grove accepts short and feature film submissions and web series for its streaming channel through the Film Grove Online Film Festival and by mail.
We showcase films for women and people of color. For consideration of submission to our channel and festival all films should either be written by, directed by, or starring women or people of color. We also screen films about issues that affect and are significant to women and people of color.
