WELCOME TO FILM AHOY!
Here at Film Ahoy, we are all about independent cinema! We provide a fresh and easy to navigate place for all your independent film needs. We bring together an exciting, international catalogue of films spanning a vast array of genres.
As filmmakers we have seen how the digital era is changing the independent film sector and there is less opportunities for filmmakers to make sustainable models for independent films. It's hard to compete with the big studio films and still expect consumers to pay the same price for the less known independent films. We feel our model is about a strong pricing strategy, volume and quality content.
On Film Ahoy, we pride ourselves on offering the most expansive catalogue of films available to watch for free. Rather than charging a monthly subscription service or a varying price per film, Every film can be watched for free with the inclusion of 2 minute advertising breaks every 20 minutes during the film. Additionally, there is the choice to pay a flat rate of £1 per film to watch them without the adverts if you would prefer the full cinema experience!
This structure not only lets us provide the audience with the most cost way to view their favourite films (paying at most £1 per film), but also means money goes directly back into the independent film industry. This means the filmmakers can continue making amazing cinema experiences long into the future, within a sustainable film industry.
This modern mix of audience payments and Ad revenue allows us to take on the global issue of movie piracy, which has been choking the industry since the advent of online file sharing. If films can be watched legally for free, or as little as £1, and without the horrendous image and sound quality frequently present on illegal copies, it will give a clear and appealing alternative to pirating films.
We offer a brilliant opportunity for Advertisers to bring their clients products to a global audience, with great opportunities for acute audience targeting based on genres and international territories.
We hope you enjoy Film Ahoy as much as we have creating it. Happy viewing!
