SnagFilms inks festival pact

Hot Docs, Outfest deals with digital distributor

SnagFilms, the nascent digital distribution outfit backed by former top AOL execs, has set pacts with three fests: Hot Docs, Outfest and Full Frame.

The alliances will mean the fests’ programs past and present will be on the SnagFilms site and a venue for Web premieres.

SnagFilms will now also make it easier for films that have been screened at any one of 100 international fests to submit their film for expedited review and distribution via SnagFilms.

The deals follow a major one earlier this spring with YouTube.
