Liquid Media Group Ltd. (Nasdaq: YVR) is a business solutions company with proven experience in helping entertainment businesses grow and succeed globally, dedicated to delivering independence for independents.
Liquid’s end-to-end solution enables professional video (film/TV and streaming) creation, packaging, financing, delivery, and monetization by empowering IP creators to take their professional content through the entire production lifecycle.
To help independent producers outside of the central studio system achieve sustainable growth, Liquid leverages its powerful four-phase solution engine. Phase one drives IP growth through access to a suite of powerful tools and services using artificial intelligence. The second phase uses internal de-risked mechanisms to maximize the monetization of selected IP. Phase three offers integrated digital asset management of content for IP owners and creators of all sizes, built to scale. The final phase grants access to internal and external distribution channels, including a streaming ecosystem as well as tools and services for discoverability, recommendation, and curation.
“My dream for Liquid was always to bring amazing stories to the world, and to provide the tools to storytellers to make that happen”Joshua Jackson, Liquid’s Chairman.
Recently, Liquid has successfully executed the acquisition of both Digital Cinema United and iGEMStv. These partnerships add critical assets to Liquid’s powerful four-phase solution engine.
DCU is a global content service partner that provides a unique set of digital supply chain services and tools to content owners, resellers, and distributors around the world. As the model for content continues to evolve, DCU offers best in class end-to-end services and supports the bigger picture for film distribution.
iGEMStv, the most comprehensive content recommendation engine on the market, utilizes a unique blend of human curation, word of mouth, and machine learning to provide users quality recommendations for movies and TV programs not found in larger streaming platforms. In addition, users on the platform can access advanced search tools to search by genre, category, emoji, or even mood.

Slipstream is a subscription video on demand (SVOD) streaming platform, containing hundreds of action sports films with categories like surfing, rock climbing, running, and mountain biking.
During the hybrid Sundance Film Festival 2022, Liquid launched its first blockchain film streaming with a slate of digital panel presentations. Hosted via the Eluvio-Liquid Media blockchain framework, Angst, the original documentary film produced by iNDIEFLIX CEO Scilla Andreen, streamed on-demand for a limited time via Eluvio’s Content Fabric and Liquid’s next-generation supply chain.
To introduce the Angst streaming, Liquid and Deadline hosted a virtual panel conversation during Sundance on January 21, where Andreen discussed the documentary, its impact, and explained the crucial contents of the Angst toolkit, which purchasers could access via NFT tokens.
“Liquid is delivering a professional approach empowering independents with an entire strategy for leveraging the blockchain to engage with and monetize their global audiences,” said Ron Thomson, Liquid’s CEO. “The Liquid solution has been meticulously constructed to serve the needs of independents.”
