SnagFilms is a media company that offers advertising-supported documentary films to consumers. Films are streamed on their website, which contains a library of around 2,000 films. The site includes documentary films produced by notable names such as National Geographic and PBS, as well as hundreds of independent filmmakers. Their mission is to provide the best content available across a wide range of digital channels, empowering both the media consumer and documentary filmmakers around the globe.
In order to manage the increasingly complex landscape of rights acquisition and digital distribution deals that underlie their business, SnagFilms requires an integrated rights and asset management platform to handle their full rights contract lifecycle. Because the proliferation of digital channels is uncharted territory, it is essential to SnagFilms success that they have a platform and a partner who understands the complexities of digital distribution and can help them to maintain control and visibility into the rights they acquire and the content they distribute.
