Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What kinds of films can I see on CineMigrants?

A: Great question! We only showcase independent short films that are created by migrants in the director, cinematographer, or other leadership roles. Who is considered to be a migrant? Well, in our eyes anyone who feels that they are a minority in their community, and bring a different mindset or point of view to the production. In terms of the film's genre, we are open to all motion pictures under 60 minutes in length.

Q: Where can I watch the films?

A: Once you've registered, you can watch the shows twice a month in our Stream Theatre -> streatre at https://cinemigrant.com/streathre/

Q: What are the screening dates and times?

A: Since CineMigrant is a monthly online film festival, the films are only shown twice a month for a 48-hour period... the show always starts at 8 pm on the last Thursday of every month and it stays available to be watched for 48 hours. Then we repeat the same show exactly two weeks later starting again at 8 pm AEST and staying available for 48 hours.

Q: How does the selection process work?

A: Every month the judges watch all the submissions and select the top five films which we then include in the show.

Q: What is the Depth of Field show is about?

A: This is the LIVE talk show we have with the filmmakers after each monthly show. During the festival, viewers can submit questions that will provide some of the talking points. We're also very interested to know about the filmmaker's personal story, as well as to hear what is it like to be a migrant filmmaker in their experience.

Q: Why are the films only available for 48 hours?

A: As you may know, the majority of filmmakers and production houses like to submit their work to various film festivals, most of which forbids them to have the film freely available online. It is the only way festivals can sell enough tickets to keep the lights on, by making sure their target audience isn't able to watch the selected films anywhere else but their event. For this reason, most filmmakers avoid sharing their work online on an open platform before the planned festival run is finished. We need to make sure that the films are protected, and that our event is not considered an online public release by other festivals, but rather an exclusive screening to a limited, closed audience.
