MISSION & OBJECTIVE
"Cintarium” What’s in a name:

The Cinetarium International film festival received its name
from the first 360-degree motion picture process, invented by
Geman Inventor Adalbert Baltes in the mid 1950’s and introduced to the motion picture industry of the world by BIll Rebane in 1959 in Chicago.

Cinetarium was the first and only 360-degree motion picture
process filmed with one camera and projected with one projector onto a wrap around screen without seems. That inspiring and bold film innovation was the fore runner of Cinemax and rotascope cameras prompted the use of its name for this festival and represents the entrepreneurial, creative and bold spirit of this Wisconsin event.

Ever since the introducton of Cinetarium in 1959, Walt and Roy
Disney have attmpted to improve their circa rama process (using multiple cameras and projectors without perfecting a seamless 360-degree image.

One of the features of the Cinetarium Film Festival will be a major photographic display of the Cinetarium process, accompanied with lectures of the "far ahead of its time motion picture innovation."

We have reached the Moon and Mars. But to this day still have not reached a 360-degree seamless image on a movie screen.

GENERAL RULES
Any genre of film allowed. Your film must have been completed after January 1, 2011.

Films shown in other festivals, in limited noncommercial exhibition, or at cast/crew screenings are eligible. Programming preference is given to films without significant exposure in Wisconsin theatrical and broadcast markets prior to the Festival.

The Cinetarium Film Festival does not insist upon any premiere status.

Rough cuts may be submitted as long as you are confident that you will have locked and finished your film in time for work with the Festival programming schedule. The more complete your work, the better it can be assessed and appreciated during the selection process. If you are considering submitting a rough cut, you should be confident that it is a fair representation of the final quality of your work. Decisions will be made on the version you submit; generally, later submissions of different cuts are not considered.

Please list directly on the DVD case (tape a note to the case, or some other equivalent method) which elements of your film are missing.

You can submit more than one film, as long as each work meets the applicable criteria. Each film must be on a separate DVD. Each film requires its own entry form and submission fee. Multiple entries can be mailed together in the same envelope.

The Festival will not consider:
Films completed before January 1, 2011.
Commercials or advertisements. Industrial, medical, or institutional films. Video games. Stand-alone trailers. Films with prior substantial theatrical exhibition, commercial TV broadcast or webcast, or commercial video distribution in the Wisconsin, market.
Work that will not be completed by the Festival. The Festival does not include “works in progress” in its final program.

One person should be designated as the contact for each entry. The Festival handles hundreds of submissions and can only successfully work with one contact per film. The contact need not be the director, but should be authorized to submit the work, supply information as described on the entry form, and speak on behalf of the film. All necessary rights and permissions for festival exhibition of each work submitted is the responsibility of the film production.

General Requirements

Any Genre.
Films with distribution are accepted. Send a press kit if you have distribution.
Films must be presented in English. Dubbing or Subtitles are allowed for films not originally shot in English.
All Submissions must be in NTSC format on either DVD (Region 0), MiniDV, or a digital file (avi, mov, mpg-2).
Send 2 copies of your Submission.
All Submissions must include a synopsis and a complete cast and crew list.
If submitting more than one film, please fill out a separate submission form for each.

If Your Film is Accepted

All contacts will be notified of their film’s status (accepted or not accepted into the Festival) no later than April 10, 2013. At that time we’ll also notify any filmmakers who are receiving awards for their work.

We’ll send you more information about what’s required at that point, including at least one still photo from the film and photos of the filmmakers. The Festival’s print traffic coordinator will make arrangements for getting the final exhibition version of your film.

The Cinetarium Film Festival International regrets that it is not able to financially support travel expenses. Acceptance of your film into the Festival program should not be interpreted as also including travel costs or other expenses.

A certain number of free tickets to your film’s screening(s) will be arranged for the contact person. The exact number may vary depending on the size of the theater and the number of other filmmakers included in the same program (such as for shorts programs where there may be a dozen films together). We encourage anyone connected to the production to attend, but the Festival can only set aside a small number of tickets for each filmmaker.

Filmmakers will also receive a free ticket package to see other films around the Festival. These can be used by filmmakers, or shared with friends if you are not able to attend. The specific details of how many free tickets, and how to receive them, will be sent to you if your film is accepted.
