The Cannes Film Festival, the largest film festival in the world, ended on Sunday. The biggest show was Amour by Michael Hanneke’s which won the Palme d’Or, the top prize at the festival. Although there was quite the American influence, none of the American directors or actors were given prizes. Stars like Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Kristin Stewart, Zac Efron, and Robert Pattinson all played roles in different films, but to no pay off.
Keeping up with the modern consumer has been difficult for film companies, the game has changed. Film and video are moving to a new online environment, and it’s important for the content creators to have the right tools to make their online presence matter, and to give their consumers the right tools for getting a hold of that content.
Mainstream data has worked with the film industry for years and has the technology in place to help film and television makers leverage their content and easily deliver it to their audiences.
We recently built a platform that hosts and archives television shows. The content creators use the platform as a way to host content that has already aired as well as a way to allow networks to view new shows that are being pitched (those that are essentially still up for sale).
Imagine if the Cannes organizers had something similar in place? They could upload all of the films to one platform online where potential film buyers could come and view the movies, documentaries, and short films and skip all the glitz, glamour, and photo shoots of the actual festival … it’s just a thought.
Mainstream Data created and maintains the largest movie delivery network in the world, using cutting-edge technology to deliver movies to theaters around the world. This is accomplished by setting up content distribution platforms and sending digital files, as opposed to reels of films, via satellite to theaters.
Mainstream Data helped push the first wave of digital cinema forward, and now, with other new technologies we can help you move your films and television shows to a digital platform. Showing that you are part of digital cinema will boost your credentials as you attempt to create a name, and using our platform will help you to stay organized in a very convenient way.
