The Cinegi Europa project aims to develop UK audiences testing how an innovative, secure, fully digital distribution service could bring non-national European cinema to new audiences as a shared experience in non-traditional venues.
The Cinegi Europa service, a public benefit version of the Cinegi service, uses a version of the Cinegi platform which provides the secure, digital distribution of filmed media public exhibition, enabling non-theatrical venues of all kinds (from village hall to pub, and from arts centre to high street pop-up) in towns and remote villages to become ’cinemas’.
It works as download over the public internet and standard broadband. The project aims to ensure that within the content mix Cinegi offers to UK audiences (independent UK and international feature, documentary film and filmed performance), there is a key catalogue strand of non-national/non-English language European film.
Cinegi Europa places venues and promoters at its core, developing capacity through the project and identifying both barriers and enablers to further improve capacity in the non-theatric, alternative exhibition sector. This activity provides an evidence base and business case for new venues and for extending programming for venues new to this type of content.
