Zeitgeist Films

The spirit of independent film online

The Challenge

Update the identity and develop a world-class ecommerce website for one of New York’s premier independent film distributors. Zeitgeist Films was founded in 1988 to acquire and distribute the finest independent films from the U.S. and around the world. Since that time they have expanded operations to sell direct online as well as promote and distribute in theaters, through educational, and other non-theatrical channels.


It all starts with creative and an understanding of our client’s unique goals and challenges. This project started with a meeting of Cyber-NY’s creative director and Zeitgeist’s founders and creative team at their Soho loft and base of operations.

Cyber-NY developed a new online identity for Zeitgeist that communicated a forward vision while maintaining a connection to their 25+ year history. A striking full screen experience with responsive design was developed to provide a website that looked great and performed well on desktop, tablet and smart phone devices. The back-end film management and ecommerce systems were completely re-imagined and custom tailored to Zeitgeist’s unique requirements.


The end result was a visually striking, customer focus website that enables Zeitgeist to deliver their films effectively through theatrical, online, and digital channels.
