(05/09/07) – The Hamburg Short Film Agency is now offering a shortfilm download service. The downloadable films are from the organisation’s own distributional stock and will be offered at an introductory price of 3 Euros. Among them are several festival favourites such as Motodrom by Jörg Wagner (pictured) and Bloody Footy by Dean Chircop.
The films are delivered without any copy-protection so that viewers can burn the short film onto DVD and watch it as many times they wish. Along with the film the downloader receives a PDF cover and a menu with subtitles if the film is not English.
The agency informs that depending on the film length and internet connection the download will take between 10 and 30 minutes. The downloaded film will be a DVD Image in Iso format which can then be processed with the relevant burner software.
Only a limited number of short films are on offer at present, but all of the films from the distributional stock will be available to download in the near future.
