Living Room Theaters Indie Film Submission
Living Room Theaters is a cinema that has something different from other ‘normal’ cinema. It has different ways to get films distributed and viewed to audience. First, it uses digital projection. When the cinema first launched in December 2006, it becomes the first and the only cinema that use all-digital system in its country. The digital system of distributing films has many advantages; it is very efficient but still environmental friendly. It doesn’t need any transportation cost the traditional celluloid has, and it’s also helps to reduce unwanted chemicals that are contained in celluloid, saving the earth little by little.
Well, not only that. Living Room Theaters has another thing that makes it different from other cinema. The cinema is dedicated to independent film makers and directors; they allow the indie production to submit their films into the cinema for exhibition. This policy gives the independent film makers chance or opportunity to get their films finally viewed by massive audience without having to pay the high cost of the film distribution. However, the films that are submitted into the cinema will still be clarified to tell if it is qualify to get an exhibition.
Another notes independent film makers should get is that the films that has been released or distributed with DVD won’t be able to get an exhibition. The same goes also for the films that have produced before the year 2009. Living Room Theaters give a guideline to tell if your films qualify their requirements. The first is the formats that are accepted for the exhibition, and the second is the marketing and promotion that the films get before submitted to the cinema. Following the guidelines will make your film get more consideration on whether it will be exhibited or not in the cinema. Anyway, it is a good chance for many independent film makers to grow.
