About
Festival programmers, sales agents, distributors, broadcasters and other purchasers have access to Cinetech, a curated state-of-the-art platform for the sales and acquisition of films. The first of its kind in the Middle East, the Cinetech features a carefully selected bouquet of films showcased within the DIFF programme, titles recommended for the market by the festival programmers, as well as films from various DFM participants.

Cinetech is a platform to safely screen films and communicate with films’ rights’ holders.

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 2016, the Cinetech housed 293 titles and during the course of the Festival recorded over 2000 screenings.



The Cinetech’s content


The Cinetech offers invited buyers a selection of films from around the world including both short and long fiction and non-fiction films. A library of the latest titles of which many are market premieres along with detailed rights’ availability and a direct contact to the rights’ owners. Filmmaker and right holders related information, and contact details as well as film related information and a high resolution final cut of the film will all be made available on Cinetech.



Who has access to view the films included in Cinetech?


The films are digitized onto the Cinetech server and will only be made available for closed and private screenings by industry delegates through Cinetech and its individual digital video stations during the Festival. Both digitization and streaming processes are secure and no copy or duplication of the films can be made by third parties.



A mutually beneficial platform


Festival programmers, sales agents, distributors, broadcasters and other purchasers will have access to films on Cinetech providing rights’ holders excellent opportunities to connect with industry leaders and key decision makers in the film and content industry of the MENA region and around the world. Last year over 4,000 delegates from 62 countries attended the DFM.
The films selected for the Cinetech benefit from new initiatives that will help them secure a distribution deal and screen to and exclusive audiences in the region and on the world stage.
