Behind the Screen: The Tech Powering Vision Films' Global Reach


Vision Films is an influential player in film distribution. They are a leading global VOD distributor, partnering with highly recognized TVOD, SVOD and AVOD digital platforms, television channels, and library services. With 2 to 4 major films released domestically every month and a global footprint in acquisitions, Vision Films has found an effective way to stay on top of their library and connect with buyers.  

Client Challenge

The world of Video-On-Demand (VOD) presents challenges due to the swiftness that titles exchange hands and the vast number of platforms and regions to track. Vision Films sells to numerous outlets worldwide, making managing and monetizing all of their titles and agreements challenging.

Before they came to FilmTrack, they sought:

  • A centralized system to manage their growing titles and related assets, as well as smoothly incorporate new ones 
  • A customer-facing platform to enable easy purchasing from distributors, studios, and library services.

How FilmTrack Delivers on the Client's Needs:

Real-time Data Integration

Vision Films uses FilmTrack's entertainment rights management software to put its avails on the company's website in real time. Changes made within FilmTrack immediately reflect on the Vision Films site, ensuring real-time accuracy for potential buyers.

Enhanced User Experience

FilmTrack’s Contracts and Availabilities Manager powers Vision Films' website, allowing users to view film images and even print availables with custom images via a template PDF or spreadsheet.

Titles can be grouped in a combination of ways aiding in isolating titles by genre, region, etc. Titles' supporting assets (music, images, documents) are also readily available in the system for ease of reference.

API Integrations

FilmTrack provides robust APIs that improve system connections for integrations and migrations. Vision Films has smoothly integrated an acquired library into their current offerings via APIs, allowing them to manage hundreds of titles on the FilmTrack platform.

Results with FilmTrack

Vision Films has successfully used FilmTrack's for over a decade, demonstrating the platform's reliability and effectiveness in tracking their avails. There are four critical areas where they benefit:

  1. Transparency: Vision Films believes in transparency. They even display previous licensors on their titles, helping buyers ascertain the potential value of a film based on its previous distributor. FilmTrack's system allows them to keep these details handy.

  2. Efficiency: Before using FilmTrack, Vision Films would constantly email out lists of availables. With FilmTrack, most buyers now visit their website and view updated lists, making the process much more efficient.

  3. Streamlined Communication: Once buyers identify potential films of interest, they can easily connect with Vision Films through the website's contact page. The self-serve nature of connecting to Vision Films' assets through FilmTrack automates communication and processes.  

FilmTrack provides a comprehensive solution for Vision Films to manage and showcase its vast library of available films. Through the integration of FilmTrack, Vision Films can offer real-time, dynamic film avails to potential buyers, streamlining the process for both the distributor and the buyer. The system has empowered Vision Films to be transparent, efficient, and responsive to the needs of the ever-evolving distribution industry.
