The AAFF works with every filmmaker exhibiting at the festival to get
the highest quality version of their work: 16mm, 35mm, or digital
QuickTime file (with the least compression possible). Filmmakers
sending us digital work usually ship a hard drive, data disc or flash
drive (we ship back the drives).
For accepted filmmakers who can't send us any of these formats, we can
transfer a digibeta or beta sp to a digital file for them (though we
try to avoid this extra step of compression/transfer).
We went to tapeless projection 2 years ago and have been able to
screen everyone's work regardless of their workflow or format. We're
hearing great feedback from the audience and from filmmakers seeing
their digital work projected at out fest.
Thanks for helping us clarify any confusion Myron. We'll update our
website info soon.
