Users will be able to access all the above features of a registered subscriber, but with much more benefits.
These include complimentary access to watch movies on iGEMS partner platforms, including:
Filmocracy.com, the film and festival hosting platform, where one can enjoy thousands of movies or attend festivals from all around the world).
Indieflix.com, which presents On-Demand Streaming and LiveTV channels that showcase classic and contemporary features, shorts and documentaries from around the world. Think of it like an Aladdin’s Cave of thought-provoking well-known and off-the-radar content.
Projektor.com, the new filmmaker-first marketplace for creators and producers which connects independent producers to audiences.
iGEMS+ will allow its subscribers to earn Rewards Points for their activity, such as Like, Rate, Review, Add to Watchlist and sharing with friends (via msg, email, slack etc).
