Description

Cinegi is the new secure fully digital film distribution and entertainment service, launching in the UK in second half of 2013, which enables pretty much any venue which can seat people and project video to do legal public screenings of filmed media in HD. It removes the barriers that currently prevent the commercially successful distribution of film to the many audiences that are not well served by mainstream cinemas and traditional distributors. Cinegi provides secure digital delivery of film to independent cinemas and other venues – from village halls to pubs, universities to libraries, arts centres to sports centres. It has a platform and player that are simple to use, functionality to curate combinations of film into packages ready to screen, a logistics service to deliver any of these packages digitally and tools to facilitate marketing to consumers. Development of Cinegi was led by Golant Media Ventures. Golant Media Ventures helps content owners, venues and brands make sense

Objective

1. Our primary Cinegi objective for MIP, Cannes Film Festival and summer 2013 is to sign deals with rightsholders to secure theatrical and/or non-theatrical (public video) rights for the UK for the Cinegi launch later in 2013. We are interested in: • Features – mainstream new and recent releases, classic, independent, arthouse, foreign language, documentaries • Shorter form – shorts, archive, made-for-TV • Recorded culture – theatre, comedy, music, dance • Wrap-around content – interviews, Q&As and making-ofs We can take the position of: • non-exclusive UK distributor (theatrical and/or non-theatrical) – dealing directly with a sales agent or producer (although we will not usually do deals on individual titles) • co-distributor to co-release titles and reach venues and audiences not reached through traditional theatrical release – working with a UK distributor • sub-distributor to provide additional 'long tail' revenues from non-theatrical venues and repertory programmed cinemas after the early part of the first run – again working with a UK distributor 2. Our secondary (Golant Media Ventures) objective is to promote to a cross-media discovery technology which we have designed and in which we have invested to: • large rightsholders • video distribution and VoD platform owners • app developers • content curation, personalisation and recommendation service and technology owners
