FOR-PROFIT FUNDING PARTNER

At Kappa Distribution, we strive to ensure absolute transparency and fairness for all those who contribute financially to our films. This includes both those who have supported the film’s production and those who contribute to its marketing and distribution. Therefore, we reject the conventional Hollywood financial models where only a few individuals receive the majority of the revenue generated by the film, leaving the vast majority with little to no compensation. Instead, with Kappa Distribution, we all share in the revenues from the very first dollar generated until the last.
When a film is distributed, there are myriad revenue streams that generate income, such as theatrical releases, digital streaming, and foreign sales. The majority of the revenue (approximately 70%) is earned within the first year after the film’s release. By the end of the second year, approximately 90% of the film’s total revenue will be received, with the remaining 10% trickling in during the third year and beyond.
 
As our mission at Kappa Distribution is to impact the culture for Christ, we believe it is crucial to assist filmmakers in achieving financial success so that they can continue creating films that make a positive impact on the culture. Therefore, after decades of experience and years of prayer, we firmly believe that the following financial model is in the best interest of all parties involved:
 
Initially, all revenues generated through the film’s distribution will be split as follows:
  • Marketing & Distribution funders 40% (prorated)
  • Filmmaker/Film funders 35%
  • Kappa Distribution 25%
Once the marketing & distribution funders are made whole, revenues are split as follows for the duration of the agreement:
  • Marketing & Distribution funders 10% (prorated)
  • Filmmaker/Film funders 70%
  • Kappa Distribution 20%
