IFLM Brings on Director of Communications

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - The Independent Film Development Corporation (OTCBB: IFLM) is adding public relations and marketing professional Brian Floyd to its team. Floyd will be serving as IFLM's Director of Communications, Chief Evangelist and Assistant to the CEO.

"IFLM is extremely happy to have Brian Floyd joining our team," said Jeff Ritchie, CEO and Chairman of the Board for IFLM. "Brian brings a unique blend of experience in public relations, branding and social media management that will help IFLM engage the independent film making community and establish IFLM as a distributor of choice for these talented and passionate filmmakers."

Brian Floyd started his career as a spokesman for a member of the California State Legislature. Floyd then went into the private sector as a consultant specializing in public relations, marketing, branding, and social media management. He has worked on high profile campaigns of candidates for Congress, the State Legislature, City Council, and School Board. Floyd also worked for several public safety labor unions.

"This is a tremendous opportunity and I'm excited to become a part of IFLM," said Brian Floyd. "It's very disappointing to know that thousands of independent films are produced every year, yet only a handful are screened at film festivals and even fewer receive distribution. There are good movies being made by extremely talented people that deserve to be seen. I believe IFLM can help such movies reach their audiences."

Brian Floyd joins IFLM as the company launches its rebranding strategy and puts the finishing touches on new presentation materials soon to be available for investors. In his role as IFLM's Chief Evangelist, Floyd will be responsible for engaging the independent film making community in person and through social media to hear about the specific needs of these filmmakers and share how IFLM can help bring their movies to audiences.
