DIFF | Dubai Film Market | Cinetech | About Cinetech
WHAT IS CINETECH?Festival programmers, sales agents, distributors, broadcasters and other purchasers have access to Cinetech, a state-of-the-art platform for the sales and acquisition of films and TV content. The first of its kind in the Middle East, the Cinetech features films showcased within the DIFF programme, Market recommended titles, as well as films from the DFM partners, sales agents and participating exhibition stands.
Cinetech is a platform to safely screen films and communicate with sales agents.
Since 2008, Cinetech has facilitated numerous sales and partnership deals by successfully connecting international and regional industry professionals with the films’ rights’ holders.
Cinetech simplifies the screening process, allowing delegates the opportunities to maximize their time at DFM. In 2015, the Cinetech housed 293 titles and during the course of the Festival recorded 2,135 screenings.
Festival programmers, sales agents, distributors, broadcasters and other purchasers will also have the added benefit of being able to access the line-up of films offered through the Cinetech private server at DIFF's 13th edition for an extended period of a month and a half. That access will be online through the DIFF website, which guarantees global accessibility. Filmmakers that have approved for the additional viewing time will be ensuring that industry professionals will have more time to view the titles on offer and secure distribution deals.
This opportunity will be available to all Market delegates that have access to the Cinetech during the Festival starting the 15th of December 2016 and till the 31st of January 2017.
