Digital Cinema Packages For Film Festivals, Distributors & Theaters

What is a DCP?

A Digital Cinema Package (DCP) is a collection of files that allow movie theater servers to recognize and play your film on the big screen. The digital equivalent of a 35MM film print, DCP is a universal industry standard format used by nearly every modern movie theater, worldwide.
