Distribution.

Have you produced a film, and would like to submit it for our consideration?
We’d like to learn about it! The purpose of making any film is to have it seen. Green Planet Films provides a critical link between filmmakers and audiences interested in nature, environmental and human ecology genres. We connect these films to schools, organizations, businesses, government agencies, and individuals worldwide.
Green Planet Films welcomes submissions of completed works. To begin, please email us at info@greenplanetfilms.org and provide a synopsis of your film; and provide a link to your film’s trailer and website. Once reviewed, if we wish to proceed, we will provide an overview of our distribution process.
We offer the following services:
  • Home video and educational distribution
  • Community Screening promotions
  • Streaming on various platforms like Amazon Instant Video and Prime, Vimeo on Demand, Hoopla, and Overdrive
  • DVD sales and fulfillment
