How do you want to watch Small is Beautiful?

direct download small is beautiful

My favourite place to watch documentaries is on my laptop. I love being able to download the film directly from the filmmakers off their website and watch whenever I want to.

This is why the first place you’ll be able to get Small is Beautiful?is from our website.

However I realise I’m not the only one who is going to watch?Small is Beautiful?and I’d love to know:

How you would like to watch it?

I want to try and bring as many of these options to you as possible. We’re most likely to choose the most popular. If you want to watch the film in a specific way, vote below!

p.s. Have you watched our new trailer?

    Direct download would be the most versatile solution, as we would not be limited to watching through a specific program such as iTunes :)

  • Vimeo on demand is fine, rental / buy.

    • Thanks Jenna!

      We might do Netflix in a year or so. They’re a little bit evil towards the film makers unfortunately :(

  • Nathan

    Vimeo on Demand, with option to rent/buy/stream/download

  • Taylor Gorman

    Direct download is great, because I can watch the file however I want, but the advantage of iTunes is never having to keep track of the file because iTunes has record I purchased it, or carry it with me because I can stream it.

    I’d love any format that could be streamed using my Roku – so Amazon works, and I believe Vimeo might also work with Roku.

    • Awesome Melissa.

      I just checked VHX (how we’re making the download available through our website) and they support Roku.

      Check it out here:

      Definatley netflix!

  • Scott Vassell-Pittman

    Direct download is best.

    I might be the weirdo in the room here, but I personally prefer to have a physical copy of my movies, music, and games, whether that’s in DVD or Blue Ray format. This allows me to put it on as many devices as I want, take it to a friend’s house, or even just to have a back up. Maybe you could do a Limited Edition hard copy release, with special bonus content, autographs, etc.? Then you’d save money by not having to pay for it to be produced long term, and the 4% (so far) of us that want a hard copy and the die hard Small Is Beautiful fans could get what we wanted as well. Just some thoughts :)
    Also the new trailer is wonderful! Keep up the great work!

      Me too, I want a DVD so I can loan it out when I get lots of questions from family & friends about why I will build one!

  • Stream online. Don’t have a preference where it would be from…

  • Jacob

    Definitely a simple direct download/stream. The less affiliation with a 3rd party system the better and more universally accessible it will be :)

  • Katie

    LOVE the film! From a fellow small-house-dweller (I live in my converted Ford Transit in the Alps and write about it on my blog, Je Suis Une Monstre). XXX

    Voted for direct download, but would also love to be able to consider possibly buying dvd to have in collection i definately!
