- Karina Epperlein, Karina Films

Kanopy provides us with an imaginative and robust platform for our library of films through their website and their promotions, and gives us a strong brand identity.

- Andrew Pike - Managing Director, Ronin Films

Kanopy surpasses all competitors in speed and overall savvy. I am always impressed.

- Suzanne Harle - CEO, Green Planet Films

As an independent filmmaker who self distributes, working with Kanopy has been a great partnership in which we exchange ideas and experience to find the best way to reach our target audience.

- Lucy Ostrander - Filmmaker, Stourwater Pictures

Kanopy gives me and my work first-class, personalized attention. We devise campaigns together and partner to give my film the highest visibility and sales. Kanopy is 100% on my side and works hard to get my films to as many audiences as possible.
