As a rule, films in DCP format are delivered to cinemas on hard disks in special shockproof cases. When transferring a hard disk abroad Russia requires supporting documents. Now are widely used flash drives to transfer files to festivals (up to 64 GB.).
In this case, you should pay special attention to the speed of reading and writing drive, otherwise copying can take a very long time. Short films can be sent to the festival on a USB flash drive or a portable hard disk.
Absolutely all movie servers support standard Windows file systems: FAT32 and NTFS. If your film has a capacity of more than 4 GB (in most cases this is it), a flash drive must be formatted with NTFS, since the FAT32 file system does not support files larger than 4 GB.
We recommend using media containing only DCP files (without "extra" files). Digital film delivery via satellite and Internet channels is also actively developing. This service is provided by Cinelab and DCP24 labaratories.
