There’s no limit to the age, length, or number of films you can upload. So whether it’s a brand new feature that just wrapped in post or a short you made in film school that deserves to be seen… you can keep scheduling screenings, collecting rental fees, and building your library in perpetuity!


AirFive Transparency

We don’t make promises. We help you the best we can and we stay honest with our real-time reportings for you as a filmmaker. When we work together, we can truly disrupt distribution.

Increased traffic = $

Through our crowdsourced model, we will only send requests your way when they are guarenteed to be worth it. In addition, we incentivize foot traffic and engagement with your theater through our mobile app and rewards platform. We want to work together to fill your empty seats, fill your lobbies and gain knowledgable insights.

Common Questions

OK! So I signed up, now what?

Now tell your friends and family about your screening event and share it on social media, using the sign up link we give you. We then find a place to screen it and a date we negotiate with the theater, community center, park or wherever else.

How do I know what’s playing near me and how do I buy a ticket?

Two ways and their both simple: (1) download our AirFive mobile app, available on the iOS app store or Google Play store OR (2) get a link from the filmmaker.

So I could not sell enough tickets, what now?

Friends and family are pretty forgiving and flexible, so we will work to find a date and venue that matches. Then we will update them as needed. If it doesnt end up happening, no worries. We will refund anyone who bought a ticket.

What format do I send the film to AirFive in?

For an additional fee we can create a DCP for you. Most theaters accept DVDs and/or Blu-rays so you don’t have to worry about the additional costs associated with the DCP. Either or. Again, it’s all your choice 😉

Does my project have to be big time?

No. We work with people who just want to network around their short films as well. They play them at a theater, hold a Q&A and make it a social gathering for their friends, family and others who bought tickets to come. This builds community for you.

How will I know my screening is happening for sure?

We will give you the minimum number of tickets that need to be sold based on a number of variables like what venue or what date/time, etc (we’ll be negotiating with the venue). While you’re getting friends and family to attend, we’ll be helping you market as well. And we will keep you updated throughout the process.

Could I book it myself?

Sure. But do you want to? You’re the creative, so you should focus on creating 😉 We have relationships with venues through our platform that can help with things like prices. We also use out technology to entice people to show up through rewards in our mobile app, as well as build content.
