Focus on Heritage Online the new Locarno Film Festival initiative

Heritage Online is a new Locarno Film Festival initiative: a digitally based service dedicated to extending the outreach and distribution of Heritage Films through Video on Demand, expanding the range of titles offered by such services.

 

What is Heritage Online? 

  1. 1. A year-round database of international film heritage, where VOD broadcasters will be able to watch available titles, see detailed technical information including availability of films in the various territories, and get in touch directly with rightsholders. The platform will open from beginning of July 2020, when professionals will be able to start  registering, uploading their catalogues and including film into the onine screening room.
  2. 2. Activities to facilitate networking during the days of Locarno Pro (7-9 August, taking place online in 2020): pitching of right-holders presenting their catalogues and a round table dedicated to the distribution of library titles.

How does it work?

Subscriptions for right-holders:

  • • Basic (CHF 85): this account will allow right-holders to offer a selection from their catalogue on the platform. Eligibility criteria of the titles:
    Feature length films of any genre premiered before 2005 (included).
  • • Premium (CHF 160): users will additionally be able to include one film into the Online Screening Room, where they can offer potential clients the possibility to view a selection of titles for up to one year. The inclusion of each additional film will cost 70 CHF.

Subscriptions are also open to all other Industry professionals and will give access to the Heritage Online Database and activities held during Locarno Pro (85 CHF). 

All Heritage Online subscriptions give up to 12 months access to the Database, to be renewed before July 31st, 2021.

From the 74th edition of the Locarno Film Festival (2021), Heritage Online basic subscription will also be included when purchasing a Locarno Pro accreditation.
