Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What kind of films can I see on CineMigrant?

A: Great question! We only showcase independent short films that are created by emigrants. (director, cinematographer, etc.) In terms of the genre, we are open to all motion pictures under 50 minutes in length.

Q: Where can I watch the films?

A: Once you've registered, you can join the live streams once a month at our Stream Theatre -> streatre at https://cinemigrant.com/streathre/ this is also where the Q&A will take place.

Q: What are the screening dates and times?

A: Since CineMigrant is a monthly online film festival, the films are similarly shown only once in a live stream... well technically three times as we stream first on the last Thursday of every month starting at 8:30pm AEST, then repeat the stream at 5:30am AEST the next day, and one last time 9 hours after that at 1:30pm.

Q: How does the selection process work?

A: Every month the judges select the Top5 films from all the submissions to date. You can see the judges above.

Q: What is the Q&A is about?

A: 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, what is it like to be an immigrant filmmaker in their chosen home.

Q: Why are the films only available during the live stream?

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.
