Video-on-Demand is a key revenue driver for any events where we might consider funding the filming and distribution on a commercial share basis. 


Consider these 'real world' examples which demonstrate how VOD can offer substantial income streams for high profile and niche independent films alike.


  • Sony Pictures reported in January 2015 that The Interview had grossed over $31 million in video-on-demand revenue after debuting online in December 2014, with an average per-viewer price of roughly $7.21.


  • In 2014, The Weinstein Company released Snowpiercer as a VOD only 2-weeks after the film was screened in cinemas, and reported that it had grossed $6.45 million on VOD through the first weekend of September alone, surpassing its cinema income gross of $4,500,600.


  • Black Death — An independent medieval Sean Bean film, despite making only $22,000 in cinemas, it amassed over $4 million on VOD, to date.


  • All Good Things — It made around $500,000 in cinemas, but the Ryan Gosling/Kirsten Dunst film made $6 million in VOD, to date.


  • Margin Call — A movie that looks at an investment bank over a 24-hour period racked up $5.3 million in cinemas and almost matched that figure when it generated $5 million on VOD, to date.


  • The Bachelorette — The movie, starring Adam Scott and Lizzy Caplan grossed around $1 million cinemas yet saw income of around $5 million from its VOD release, to date.
