VOD PROGRAMMING CATEGORIES
Complimentary Programming is a collection of films that we do not have on-the-ground screening rights for, but that we believe offer an opportunity to compliment already-programmed films in the network. CP receives hundreds of submissions each year and we always face the difficult task of selecting only a percentage of the outstanding works we preview annually. Due to restrictions of money and space, we relunctantly must pass on compelling and provocative documentaries simply because we have programmed all that we can for the network. With VOD we have a chance to expand our program and compliment films circulating in the network for on-the-ground screening events. For example, a local might screen a film on water issues, like Water on the Table, and audiences may wish to continue learning about the issue by watching another documentary that touches on the subject by visiting the CP VOD section and finding a film on, say, bottled water bans. These titles are therefore meant to compliment, not replace our network projections, and we will be constantly growing this section with international titles that are difficult to find otherwise, especially in Canada. ENCORE PROGRAMMING
Encore Programming comprises specially selected titles from the existing Cinema Politica collection. These are works that we have decided are outstanding and fantastic, and will provide online viewing opportunities to audiences who may have missed their projections at local CP screenings, or may not have been able to access on-the-ground screenings.
Video On Demand (VOD) programming at Cinema Politica is comprised of
Complimentary Programming and Encore Programming. Click on the section title above to learn more about what you can find in each category. FEES
All payments made for online viewing and/or downloads of CP VOD titles go directly toward filmmakers and Cinema Politica in a revenue-sharing scheme that not only benefits independent political filmmakers but our organization as well. Since CP doesn't accept corporate sponsorship or donations, we rely on every donation, small or large, as well as payments for our VOD service. We hope you enjoy and thanks for your support!
