Streams Day & Date innovates with a technique of simultaneously diffusion of films on all screens
- An experiment in film distribution which aims to offer viewers independent European films on all screens, anytime
Streams Day & Date is a project coordinated by the EuroVoD network. It is part of the Preparatory Action Circulation of European Films in the Digital Era, launched by the European Commission. Including all players involved in the cinema industry, it aims at putting innovation in film distribution by releasing films simultaneously or quasi-simultaneously in cinema theatres on DVD and on Video-on-Demand, in order to fully integrate Internet in the economics of films and build new, win-win models for digital multi-screen exploitation.
Four European titles, of various genres and nationalities, will thus be released throughout 2014 and 2015 in Spain, Belgium, Bulgaria, and Ireland.
Streams Day & Date will start with the premiere of Under the Rainbow [+see also:

Through a large spectrum of cinematic experiences, Streams Day & Date aims at increasing the global audience of European films thanks to original transnational ways of distribution. The event-driven project has also the objective of improving the conditions for the circulation of European films within the European Union and for creating a constructive dialogue between all stakeholders of the audiovisual industry.
