New for Kinetoscope: 6 :
This season we will be initiating Festival Awards. There will be two unique categories:
“BEST OF KINETOSCOPE” - Audience Award
“STAFF PICK” - Kinetoscope Staff Favorite
Kinetoscope requires an online screener to be uploaded to the FilmFreeway video player. If you absolutely cannot upload your film please CONTACT US for instructions on mailing a physical screener or sending it via another online site.
If your film is accepted for exhibition, Kinetoscope will ask for a still frame from your film for the festival screening playbill and/or promotional materials. They should have the same pixel dimensions and aspect ratio as your film's frame and clearly convey movement or dancing in the image.
If your film is accepted for exhibition, Kinetoscope is also granted the right to utilize an excerpt of your film for promotional purposes.
