IEF is proud to now make this dynamic work of art available to everyone. is unique in that filmmakers who have works exclusively appearing on this online platform share in the gross income from all new subscriptions. So, when one subscribes at IEF, one is making a donation directly to the artists.

This means that the new IEF subscriber is not overwhelmed by the platform having so many film choices that one cannot even find the movie that brought one to the channel in the first place.

With "Darkroom" being the fourth film added to, April's featured film addition will be This is Walker's film directing debut, 50+ award winning short documentary exposé that many Hollywood production employers do not want their potential employees to see.
