Actors — it’s a no brainer, put your REEL or Short Film on Smart TV

Here’s a free way to get exposure. If you’re a “cord cutter” or Independent film lover, then you may have already watched Indie-made films and TV-shows on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and other platforms.

A (free) way to get exposure for your film Reel and Short films that you have appeared in is to use the TV channels that you find on “Connected TV (CTV.) CTV is the method that Netflix and Hulu use, and you can take advantage of it.

The following methods cost you nothing or almost nothing. And they are ad-FREE, and (free to use) when you follow a few easy steps.

If you have a video that you would like to see stream on TV, there are two ways to do this:

1.) Visit – and you’ll see a FilmFreeway link, just use the Free Trailer/Teaser entry for short form content, and for longer movies just email them for a fee waiver. This is not really geared towards Reels, so see #2.

2.) Visit their Patreon campaign and donate a buck or more:

It’s just that easy, and you’ll reach over 375,000 Subscribers on Fire TV, and about 600,000 Subscribers on Roku. The Android App is new, so I don’t have allot of statistics yet.

    I visited the Patreon campaign and it looks to be a good way for actors and filmmakers to get their movies and tv shows exposure. I think I’ll try it, or maybe I’ll buy the T-Shirt or something for Cord Cutters — cause that’s waht I am.

    I love the idea. I worked on many short films, and they filmmakers didn’t even release the movie. And on 2 occassions, when I asked for a clip for my acting reel, the filmmaker said they would do it for me – but they never did. It’s like pulling teeth. So, this Blog is of great help and I appreciate the help.
