FUTURE MY LOVE tells the story of economy as a human relationship – and of our quest for alternatives.

With the ideal of a resource-based economy in mind, how can we release a film that has been made under the constraints of the current system – but still try and explore an alternative? We came up with an idea to build our own 'gift economy'.

Click on the red arrow to play a short video explaining how it works.

This kind of concept is also known as pay-it-forward. Wikipedia shows there's quite a bit of history to the idea, yet we seem to be the first to apply it to film distribution.

Would you like to be part of it?

Give the film to others

Did you see FUTURE MY LOVE? Did you like it? Can you think of other people who should really see this?

Click on the blue arrow in the player to gift the film to others – friends and strangers alike. The sliding scale will allow you to select the number of people to give the film to.

If you don't specify email recipients for all the vouchers, the remaining ones will feed into a big pool that enables anyone to watch the film for free – as long as there are vouchers in the pool.

All recipients of vouchers issued from now on will have a choice between the original English version and versions with Spanish, Italian, Polish, Swedish or English subtitles.

Accept a present and watch the film for free

You haven't seen FUTURE MY LOVE yet? If there are enough vouchers in the pool for you to watch the film for free, a message will appear below and you can accept a gift from someone who paid for you to see the film.

There is no obligation to do anything. If you like the film, it would be very nice if you could 'return the favour'  –  but not to the person who gave you the film. Instead, you can gift the film to others so they can then watch it for free, too. Instead of paying something back, you pay it forward.

Now let's see if you're lucky...

Please do not claim a voucher for FUTURE MY LOVE if you've already seen the film. Consider giving the film to others instead, as explained above.

Hi Daniel,
Thanks for your message. Sorry if the experience wasn’t seamless for you.
After payment, there should have been a screen to enter the recipients. You should also have received an email confirmation with a link to add more people as recipients (also check your spam folder and mark as ‘not spam’).
Just email us at [email protected] if this still doesn’t work for you.
