I have a DCP

We have lots of films to process, you can help us and the festival by uploading your DCP ASAP so that we can avoid any backlogs.

DCP Specs: 
Interop or SMPTE, all frame-rates accepted. All packages must be Scope or Flat. We cannot accept Full-Container DCPs. If your DCP was professionally created, then it will most likely meet these specs, so please go ahead and upload it. We'll let you know if it doesnt meet specs.
QC Process: All DCP's will be QC'd for DCI compliance, and spot checked for common issues such as sync or incorrect audio channel mapping, however, we do not watch your films in full, it is your responsibility to ensure the master you used to create your DCP is free of errors.

We will only contact you if your DCP fails QC.

Festival Specific FAQs

Can I make my own DCP? 

We do not accept self-made DCPs including ones created with Adobe Media Encoder. Nearly all DCPs that are self-made fail QC, and while it may have played fine at one or more venue, there is no guarantee if will work at other venues unless it meets strict DCI compliance. This is because cinema equipment varies from venue tovenue, so even if your DCP has played successfully elsewhere, it is not guaranteed to work at other venues, or even at previously played venues if they have since updated their software.
