By Jason Jeon, posted 11 January 2013

All cinemas are expected to convert to digital projectors by 2015, and this digital shift is having a dramatic affect on film festivals submission, exhibition, and distribution processes.

Quvis recently put out a survey report that gives filmmakers great insight into how cinema digitization is affecting film festival organizers, judging and screening practices, as well as filmmakers? distribution options out of film festivals. Any filmmaker looking for insights about how to make the best film festival impression will find many gems in this report, from film festival organizers? preferred digital formats to where and how judges view submissions.
