The IFSN team is made up of founders Jordan Raup, publisher and co-founder of The movie scene; Eric Lavallée, publisher and founder of IONCINEMA.com; and Director of Sales Matt Delman, Founder and Director of Digital Marketing Agency 3rd printing and an editor at nailing hammer.
“In the ever-changing landscape of cinema and film criticism, the very definition of ‘indie’ is changing and our mission is to work with venues and distributors that still retain that singular focus on the best in cinema,” said Raup said. “With Indie Film Site Network, we are thrilled to provide a destination for distributors and filmmakers where they know they will truly reach the most passionate fans of independent films.”
“I have long admired the contributions of our media partners and their commitment to championing ambitious filmmaking. We look forward to collaborating on new projects aimed both at an already dedicated audience as well as the next generation of cinephiles,” Lavallee said.
In a first phase, ENSI has already teamed up with top distributors on successful advertising campaigns for Oscar nominees (“The Tragedy of Macbeth”), acclaimed foreign cinema (“Neptune Frost”, “Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy”, “Hit the Road”, “Great Freedom”, “In Front of Your Face”, “Martin Eden”), famous documentaries (“Free Chol Soo Lee”, “The Mole Agent”, “Boys State”, “Feels Good Man”), and independent hits (“Shiva Baby”, “Dinner In America”, “Possessor”).
“Roger was an advocate for independent voices in both film and film criticism. It gives me great joy to continue this legacy on a daily basis at RogerEbert.com and to support other outlets that contribute to keep that independent spirit alive,” said Chaz Ebert, CEO of Ebert Digital LLC and co-founder of Ebertfest.
