FLiK will be attending the American Film Market (AFM) in Santa Monica, CA this November.
Ryan Felton, founder of FLiK, says, "I've attended AFM in years past, and I've always found it to be a great venue to connect with independent filmmakers who are either looking for distribution deals or are looking for financing to develop their projects. Specifically, FLiK will be looking for projects that we feel are a good fit for our streaming platform and distribution ecosystem."

Participants may view more than 500 screenings of 300+ films – 29 new films every two hours – the majority world or U.S. premieres. Titles range from big budget blockbusters that will be released by the major studios to lower budget art and genre films recognized at international film festivals.
