If you already have your favorite platforms for watching movies and series online, they are most likely among the best known, and therefore usually have mainstream or popular content. Now, if you’re interested in expanding your horizons a bit and giving independent filmmaking a chance, you might be interested in Filmocracy.
This is a small, new ad-supported movie streaming platform where you will find a library of over 1000 movies that you probably won’t find anywhere else.
In addition to independent movies, one way the Filmocracy seeks to differentiate itself is by offering an additional layer of gamification of the content it offers. At Filmocracy users can earn certain rewards for watching and rating the films they’ve seen. These rewards can be used for such things as improving your avatar, or for more tangible things like winning movie tickets or even gift cards.
The platform has also decided to share 10% of its profits each month with the most active users, i.e. those who leave the most reviews of the films. Something that can be followed from each user’s profile and public leaderboards.
In order to use the service you have to register with your email address and you will need to give a phone number in order to receive a confirmation code that will allow you to activate your account.
The second thing to keep in mind is that before each movie you will see an ad, the site will not work if you have an active adblocker. If you don’t want to see ads you can subscribe to premium for 10 dollars a month.
