In early May Cutaway, a Macedonian distribution company, inaugurated a multiplatform designed to make films available in cinemas across Croatia, Albania and Macedonia, and on two VoD platforms, Cinesquare.net and Pantaflix.
This multi-national, multi-support platform is part of a project called “New forms of film distribution in the Balkans – Volume 2”, initiated by Cutaway in partnership with the Croatian company Tadar and the Tirana Film Institute. Combining the means to distribute across several countries makes it possible to optimize the visibility and exploitation of films. The multi-platform will also carry versions dubbed in the each country’s language.
The project has received financial support from the EU’s MEDIA programme by winning the invitations for tenders on innovative distribution strategies and on improving the European audiovisual sector.
