About Our Company Indiewire is the leading news, information, and networking site for independent-minded filmmakers, the industry and moviegoers alike, Indiewire launched on July 15, 1996 and re-launched with a bold new approach on January 12, 2009. A two-time winner of the Webby Award for best film website (most recently, in 2012), Indiewire was lauded as a "must read" by Variety, branded the "online heartbeat of the world's independent film community" by Forbes, and dubbed "best indie crossroads" by film critic Roger Ebert.

Snagfilm's mission is to bring the world of independent film to broader audiences everywhere we can: a global digital theater showcasing the movies themselves, as well as the information and extras that enriches and provides context – from film reviews and festival coverage to interviews and opinion pieces. We are a new kind of media company – one that selects the best films and related content so you don’t have to wade through all that clutter; that makes it easy for you to enjoy now, to return later and to share it all with your friends; and that takes it to the next level – not just talking about making the world a better place, but actually doing it … and giving you all sorts of choices for you to make an impact personally. We measure ourselves on a double-bottom-line: we want to continue the growth in the number of films we distribute and the views of those films as well the revenues we make for filmmakers (and our company) -- and we want to empower individuals and communities to make a difference.
