Netribution was founded at the end of 1999 by Tom Fogg, Wendy Bevan Mogg and Nic Wistreich. Inspired by the dotcom boom Tom and Nic quit their film degrees to run the site full-time, growing to become one of the UK's most popular - and biggest - film industry websites. Due to a lack of funding from both private and public sources, Netribution.co.uk ceased being updated from February 2002 - and all went our separate ways. In January 2006 the site relaunched a beta site that would let anyone add articles.
Our aim was to encourage, assist and inspire independent creatives to use their new digital freedoms to create great work, that adds to our understanding of ourselves and the world, that helps move things forward.
