The Pappas Post is offering the world a one-stop shop for the world’s best Greek-related content while supporting filmmakers with a portion of the rental.
We’re aiming to build the world’s largest collection of Greek-themed and inspired films in one place, where an existing — and relevant— audience can find films they want to watch.
Given our global reach to hundreds of thousands of readers throughout the world who have a keen interest in “all things Greek,” we’re seeking to establish a “one-stop shop” where they can browse films of all kinds that pertain to their interests revolving around Greece.
We will build the collection on the Vimeo Pro platform which allows the audience to rent or purchase films for viewing in numerous environments including via their personal computers and other viewing options. Vimeo uses state-of-the-art technology and we feel strongly about their capabilities for this platform.
The films will be profiled and featured, complete with trailers and short descriptions on a dedicated page on our website. Each film will have its own description that can include a trailer and featured image, as well as a synopsis.
We will use our expansive social media platforms, mailing list and website reach to regularly market the films to our audience. We will incorporate various methods including descriptions and calls to action that will be embedded in related content on our website. We will also launch a “film of the week” feature as soon as we have a critical mass of films in our catalogue.
After all transaction fees are deducted, we will share 50% of all proceeds from sales and rentals with filmmakers who own the content. The remaining 50% will be donated to the Greek America Foundation, a NYC-based charity that will use the funds to support emerging filmmakers in their quest to bring more Greek-related films to the world.
Reports will be shared every month from existing Vimeo reporting methods.
While various other platforms exist, including Netflix, Amazon and others, films sometimes get lost in their expansive catalogues and marketing is up to each individual filmmaker. This can be a daunting task.
We include the marketing via our website and social media platforms that reach hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world each month.
We believe that GreekFlix by the Pappas Post can become a one stop shop for Greek-themed and Greek-inspired films of all types and genres for a relevant audience that’s searching for such content.
