Long Distance Film Festival would like to thank NoBudge for contributing six fee waivers and NoBudge2 subscriptions for the winners of our Audience Award and Jury Prize.
NoBudge is a curated streaming platform spotlighting the best in low-budget, no-budget, and DIY indie filmmaking. They present new, hand-picked short films every day with a focus on emerging visions, alternative voices, youth culture, student films, and anything else distinctive, engaging or truthful. The films are presented alongside a director interview. It is a perfect platform for young filmmakers looking to distribute their work online. NoBudge shares our fundamental belief in supporting underrepresented voices in film and we are thrilled to collaborate with them for the second Long Distance Film Festival.
“With the hurdles of theatrical distribution increasing all the time, NoBudge stands as a valuable alternative — a way for ambitious, cash-strapped directors to have their work seen and written about without having to worry over the financial and logistical headaches.” -Village Voice
NoBudge2 is a premium compendium to NoBudge that compensates filmmakers for the most watched films on the service. The service also features expanded curation, personalized watchlist and will soon be available on TV/Mobile apps.
