What format are film festivals?

What is DCP format film?
A DCP or Digital Cinema Package is the modern version of the old “35mm film reel”. It is the format movie theaters use to project feature films and trailers. Over 90% of the theatres in the world now screen from DCPs. If you’ve seen a movie in a cinema lately – it was likely from a Digital Cinema Print.
What counts as a film premiere?
A premiere or première is the debut (first public presentation) of a play, film, dance, or musical composition. A work will often have many premières: a world première (the first time it is shown anywhere in the world) and its first presentation in each country.
Do film festivals ask for release forms?
Yes. If you are making a documentary film or video and you are interviewing someone you always need to get a release form from them. Even if it’s obvious that they consented to being filmed.
What is a DCP for film festivals?

Can you make your own DCP?
Many Adobe users are shocked to find out that it’s actually very possible (and relatively simple) to create a DCP inside of Adobe Media Encoder. The software uses a built-in plugin (called Wraptor, made by Quvis) to convert files into DCPs. Under the right circumstances, it can work very well.
How much does a DCP cost?
A feature-length DCP usually costs between $1000 and $3000. The variance in cost depends on the runtime of the film and special options such as editing, encryption, 3D, 4K just to mention a few.
