    Technical specifications for films

    Technical specifications

    We want your film to shine on the big canvas at our festival. Therefore it is important to have the screening copy in the best quality possible


    We know many would like to send the film as a DCP, though we would prefer to have the film as an mp4-file in h264 or ProRes codex. This is because we need the flexibility to show the film, or parts of the film, outside the cinema, (for instance during the prize ceremony).

    The screener can be sent to film@amandusfestivalen.no within Wednesday March 8.
    If you need to send the file in physical format, please contact.


    All films without English dialogue need English subtitles. We have an international audience, so it’s important that everyone can enjoy the films.

    The subtitle must be “burned in” the video file.

    If the film is to be screened in the 2,35:1 Cinema Scope format, make sure the subtitle is not put over the letterboxes:

    For any further questions regarding the screening copy, please advise your contact person in the festival or send an email to film@amandusfestivalen.no.
