We have several features such as sharing your films for free, watching films for free, rating films for free, and even reviewing films for free. You can also follow your fellow or favorite filmmakers.
This website is attempting at solving issues where indie filmmakers struggle to gain notoriety, views, and recognition for their great work. Many indie filmmakers struggle to gain peer to peer feedback on their films as well. Novie is the answer.
Novie has introduced a new idea. Going one step further into the world of indie filmmaking and supporting indie filmmakers. We have introduced the concept of donating as a viewer to your favorite filmmakers!

FOR THE FILM LOVERS
It’s a very simple process to donate to your favorite filmmakers! All you need is a PayPal account or credit card of any sort. Firstly, the filmmaker must be a Novie affiliate to earn money through donations. They (Affiliates) will usually have a link in the description of their short film. After watching a film on Novie, you can review them by creating an account an posting it under the “Analysis & Reviews” page, or simply rate the film. If you believe they merited enough for a donation of any number; you should click the link that says Donate. The link they place is either going to redirect you to the film page, OR it will take you to the homepage. Both pages will have donation buttons as in the following images:
You simple click on donate, and fill up the amount you would like to donate. After this entering some personal details is important along with your payment details. Then… VOILA! Your money will be sent to the filmmaker!
