Zineloft is a film collective that my colleague Juliane Block and I put together to join forces in the promotion of our films and find new ways and methods of distribution in the digital world. We simply want to have a space where we can share our work and offer it together to our audiences, cross promoting to our personal networks. Here´s the mission statement of the collective:
- To provide a space for independent filmmakers embracing new distribution and business models
- To provide World Cinema to audiences without geographical restrictions, creating a body of work they can relate and come back to
- To unite forces in creating fan bases for a common body of work that we can cross market to our individual followers
- To build a catalog that as a group can be offered as packages to other distribution outlets like theaters, TV, VOD, etc. (Zineloft has a relationship to US based agent Indie Rights for the distribution of its films through Cable and online VOD platforms)
- To experiment with business models and monetization opportunities in order to create independent sustainable careers
- To facilitate the consumption of cinema online for audiences in search of alternate offers in the World Cinema market
We are starting it the both of us, but our goal is to invite other filmmakers that embrace those ideas above to join us . So, if you´re such a filmmaker please contact us through Zineloft´s website here: http://zineloft.com/join
To launch this collective we set up a theatrical screening of both of our latest feature films: Juliane´s mockumentary Kinks and my Improv feature Berlin Junction.
The event will take place this Saturday November 23rd at Kino Central (Rosenthaler Straße 39 – Hackesher Markt) starting at 8 pm (20:00) with the screening of Berlin Junction, followed by a Q&A with cast and crew and then at 9:30 pm (21:30) the screening of Kinks followed by a Q&A with Juliane.
Afterwards we all move next door to Eschschloraque for an after party.
If you want to join us you can reserve your tickets here for Kinks and here for Berlin Junction or just get them at the box office. We also have a package price if you want to see both films back to back (8,50€ for both films instead of 5€ each)
We are also giving away 2 tickets for each of the screenings. All you have to do is subscribe to the Zineloft newsletter here to find out how:
Here are the trailers for both films:
