Why We Created FilmWaiver

A few months ago, a friend who runs a mid-size film festival and listed on Filmfreeway complained about the influx of filmmakers reaching out to him daily for discount codes even when he already has a series of discount codes created. He always has to respond because these codes are not easily accessible.  I realised I have had this same problem with me submitting my films to festivals. It took me a while to find out alot of the festivals I had submitted to had discount codes which would have saved me alot of money already spent. 

We decided to solve our pain point and hence the idea for FilmWaiver was born. If you are a fan of Filmfreeway and you use the platform often as we do, Filmwaiver Chrome Plugin should be a valuable product to you. The only purpose and goal of the service is to make it very easy to access these waiver/discount codes. 

 How does it work?

1. Download plugin from Chrome Extension Store and Install ( It takes just 20 seconds to install)
2. Visit a  festival page on filmfreeway
3. Check for the red dot on the bright green FilmWaiver plugin icon at the top right of your chrome browser 
4. Click on the icon to reveal discount/waiver code
5. Click to copy code and apply at checkout of your submission.

A demo video of how this works also on our homepage.

We hope you will find this valuable. By the way, it's a free product so please feel free to share with others. We are also open to feedback and suggestions on making the product better. Feel free to reach out by email

With Love from Tobi and John...
