Tugg Alternatives

Since Tugg has gone out of business, what alternatives are people using for cinematic distribution?

Devin, Have you heard about the Gathr platform for TOD?

I found Tugg to be a really poorly run company and when i had a film there the revenue from the showings weren't great. So I did a conventional theatrical and ran in well over 200 full-run cinemas (and average for 2-weeks per cinema) and about 400 other one-off showings (more like Tugg but we made much more out of them). Gathr I found to be very unprofessional as was the case with the third company doing that sort of thing. I don't recall their name but they are an Australian company. I detail theatrical self-distribution extensively in the Ultimate Indie Film Masterclass which I've got running on Kickstarter right now. Or there's a TEDx Talk I did on the subject on YouTube. Good luck.
