Getting Your Film On iTunes

iTunes logoWhile talking with a short filmmaker recently, I suggested that he try some digital distribution via iTunes. I know that it isn’t very easy to use iTunes as a filmmaker in that it will involve using an aggregate company since Apple will not deal with indie filmmakers directly. Here is a partial list I have compiled of companies currently handling iTunes submissions. Of course, a small percentage of sales will go to each company handling the distribution, but since iTunes has considerable reach, I think it is worth it to profit share.

I have not personally vetted each company represented so I encourage you to do your own research and ask for feedback from other filmmakers who have dealt with them. I am sure this is not an exhaustive list as companies are getting new agreements every day. If you know of other companies not mentioned, please add them in comments.
