Built for the next generation of moviegoing

With Kinema, we saw the possibility of prioritizing a community screening window above others and were able to promote our film as an alternative to festivals and theatrical releases. The results could not have been more powerful. Audiences gathered across time zones and borders, creating a feeling of intimacy and connectedness and sharing the spirit of resilience that our film presents.
