reelport GmbH (Cologne)
Since its founding, reelport has been working closely with international film festivals and film makers. Over 70 international film festivals conduct their submissions through the online portal www.reelport.com. The goal of reelport is to replace the manufacture and shipping of screener DVDs with the introduction of secure screening of the films via the internet. To date, the production and shipping of 320'000 DVDs to festivals, film markets and purchasing agents has been prevented, thanks to the reelport service. In this way, not only do the festivals and film sellers save costs, but it is better for the environment. reelport also operates the Video Library for six international feature-length and short film markets: the Short Film Corner (Festival de Cannes), Tampere Film Festival, Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen, Ventana Sur, Abu Dhabi Film Festival’s Industry Center and Tallinn Black Market Industry Screenings. For each film market, the Cologne-based company develops an individual concept, which ensures the secure screening of films at film markets and in protected areas on the internet.
