Creating cutting-edge and innovative marketing and distribution strategies such as dynamic ticket pricing and theatrical on demand, following the Smart Moviegoing™ approach.

FlexyMovies™ was conceived with the idea that the film industry needs flexibility. FlexyMovies™ is first of all innovation for the entertainment industry: we pioneered digital distribution and introduced the concept of variable pricing applied to movie tickets as a way to increase moviegoing attendance and revenue. We engage audiences with a number of Smart Moviegoing™ experiences making effective use of social media and new forms of distribution such as theatrical on demand, where each screening kicks in once a threshold amount of seats is filled.
Strong of such ability to innovate and market to consumers effectively, FlexyMovies™ has expanded into providing market access to producers, advising on financing and acquisitions, developing and implementing worldwide sales and distribution strategies for quality filmed content. We are a stable presence at major film markets and festivals such as Marché du Film at the Cannes Film Festival, European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival, American Film Market, Toronto International Film Festival, Sundance, AFI Fest, LA Film Festival, SXSW, Tribeca, Rome Film Fest, Venice Film Festival, LA Web Fest, as well as at the most important professional events such as CinemaCon, CineEurope, Licensing Expo, NABShow and many others.
