We work with Simple DCP. a company that specializes in creating and storing DCP files. They take all films that were selected by our festival and load them into CRU drives (high performance drives) that are then delivered to our theater for playout.
What is DCP? DCP stands for Digital Cinema Package and is the standard digital format used by theaters. It displays the highest quality visuals and sound and provides a smooth and reliable workflow.
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A DCP: You must still deliver your DCP files to Simple DCP. First, register with the link above and then, upload your DCP files to them or send them a download link from hosted sites such as DropBox, Google Drive, etc . They will QC it and add it for delivery to the theater. There is no cost to you.
IF YOU NEED TO CREATE A DCP: Simple DCP offers a 20% discount to all our festival filmmakers. Plus, your film stays archived with them and can be used to send to future festivals.
* You are not required to use Simple DCP to create your DCP but be advised of the following: The exhibition systems in use at our festival are known to be incompatible with DCPs made using the Quvis Wraptor Plugin for Adobe products. DCPs found to be created using this software will be summarily rejected.
DON'T HESITATE TO ASK: The staff at Simple DCP is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. If you have any questions, feel free to contact them. https://simpledcp.com/
