We have Distribution... a new home!


We wanted to share with you first that our film, "Buttons in the Ground" has found distribution through IndieFlix.

IndieFlix prides themselves on being found by filmmakers, for filmmakers in order to bring independent film content (features, documentaries, short films) to subscribers in the same style that Netflix has been doing for several years. IndieFlix is a growing platform, and has relationships with other online distributors such as Hulu, Rocco, Xbox, Amazon and more. 

We are happy to be "home" on IndieFlix and we look forward to future possibilities of growing buttons on other platforms as they develop.

Here's the link to see our film & trailer on IndieFlix:

Please feel free to share the link with your family and friends as well as tag our film on facebook! You can simply forward this email, comment on your facebook tagging @ButtonsintheGround (when you comment) or of course "liking" us at:

Thank you for your continued support of our film. This has been an amazing journey for our cast and crew, and it would not have happened if you hadn't first believed this short film.

All the best,

Andrew, Ben & Trenton

more fun news!


BUTTONS IN THE GROUND was awarded BEST SHORT FILM at this past weekend's Twain Harte Film Festival in Northern CA!  We were delighted to take home this award which was up against nearly 300 other submissions.  It was also very appropriate that we would earn this award so close to where we shot the film!

This month (September), we will be screening at the BIG BEAR LAKE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL here near Southern California.

Lastly, and most excitedly, we wanted to let you know that we have elected to have an EXCLUSIVE ONLINE PREMIERE EVENT for BUTTONS!  From Sunday 9/9 - Wednesday 9/12 only, we will be sending out a link with password for everyone to screen BUTTONS online.  We will email you on Sunday to make you aware of the open link & password.
