What kind of feedback are you seeking from us?
I understand the following screening deliverables:
If your film is selected for ReeLabs, you MUST provide: 1) a downloadable Vimeo link two weeks in advance of the screening. 2) the film on a hard drive or DVD for the day of the screening (as we cannot guarantee strong enough Internet access to stream works online). 3) We also require that your film be open captioned to ensure access to all attendees at the ReeLabs event.
Yes, I understand and am able to create these deliverables.
Not quite -- I have some questions, noted below...
If you have any questions or additional thoughts to share, please note them here:
