Fearless for Creators
Stream your film or series on Fearless and earn revenue when members watch your work.
What is Fearless?
Fearless is a subscription streaming service for powerful independent film that drives our world forward with a focus on content that features diversity and inclusion. Members pay a monthly fee to watch content and a portion of that revenue is paid out to filmmakers via royalties based on viewership hours.
Royalty Rates (How Much Creators Earn)
We currently pay $0.08 USD per hour streamed for paid content (not including trailers, bonus features, or “free” episodes/videos). This rate is subject to change at any time.
Creators can also opt for their content to be available for free to everyone (including both members and non-members) in which case, the rate is $0 as Fearless does not have ads of any kind. This “free” option should only be employed by those who wish to prioritize views over revenue as you will earn absolutely NOTHING if you choose this.
Exclusivity is not required unless you wish for your title to be a Fearless Original.
Fearless will showcase your movies/shows in all available countries by default. If you have restrictions on which countries your content can appear in, let us know and we can still work with you by geo-blocking who can access your work.
What Content is Fearless Looking for?
We accept submissions for features, series and shorts across all genres. Content that features diversity and inclusion in some capacity is more likely to be accepted. Priority content types include: LGBTQ, QPOC, indigenous, female-driven, disability, documentaries, and social impact films. If your content does not fit within these focus areas, you are still welcomed to submit.
What Criteria Does Fearless Use to Make Decisions on If Content is Approved or Not?
Writing, sound, score/music, cinematography, acting, story, impact on society, uniqueness, resolution, aspect ratio, genre, typography. Anything that a film festival would look at, we look at. All decisions are final and we do not have an appeal process.
What Content We Never Accept
The following types of content are never accepted:
- Content geared exclusively to Kids.
- Music Videos or Filmed Live Concerts
- Vlogs or “Videos” that don’t count as a movie/show.
Am I Guaranteed to Make Lots of Money on Fearless?
No. There are no gurantees. You are paid when people watch your work. If lots of people watch your work, you earn lots of revenue. If nobody watches your work, you earn nothing. The Creators that earn the most on Fearless actively promote their own movies/shows and encourage their followers to watch their content on Fearless. Features and series also typically earn more than short films.
Can I make my show/film a Fearless Original?
Yes. We accept submissions for Fearless Originals as well. To be considered a Fearless Original, you must commit to your series being available exclusively on Fearless for a period of 1, 2, or 3 years, after which you may distribute it elsewhere in addition to Fearless. If you want your title to be a Fearless Original, please submit it along with a statement saying what annual license fee you would require and if you prefer a 1, 2, or 3 year term.
What Is The Contract Length?
1 year minimum. After that, month-to-month.
Are there additional ways I can earn revenue from Fearless?
Yes. You can earn additional revenue by becoming an Affiliate and helping us sell Fearless Memberships. Let us know if this interests you. If so, you will be provided with a code and anytime someone signs up for a membership, you will receive a financial reward.
I have a great idea for a show/movie. Can I pitch it to you?
No. We never accept pitches of any kind. We do not green-light projects and we do not pay for projects to be produced. We only look at completed works.
