INDIE VISIBLE is a grassroots engagement and distribution agency based in San Francisco. We work with filmmakers and distributors to design and execute successful hybrid release strategies. We help films engage their audience and make an impact by booking semi theatrical & educational screenings, developing meaningful partnerships and creating materials to support these efforts.

We respect greatly the power of stories, are committed to helping storytellers be sustainable and bring over 30 years of experience in film, non-profit partnership building and grassroots outreach to our work.


“InDIE Visible has done it all and they have an excellent sense of what, in the pantheon of distribution and outreach choices, is effective and what is not.

— Nancy Kelly, award winning filmmaker
