FromThe3rdStory Distribution

Film distribution Portal in development

At From the 3rd Story Productions, we have for a number of years been working hard to help many of you get your work out onto the small screens of the world so that you can start to earn a something from it, those of you that have been with us for a while will know that this started out as a result of us having not sold all the rights to our first movie The Hunting of the Snark, over the following years we opened this work up to other filmmakers wanting to get their work earning for them.

The latest step in this adventure is our online submissions and management portal, FromThe3rdStoryFilms, for which development is in full swing.

Don’t be put off, we are in the meantime still taking titles the old-fashioned way, until it is up and running.
