Cinebox is an online platform that massively simplifies tech for film festivals. Say goodbye to downloading links, copying files from drive to drive, ticking off arrivals on spreadsheets, and watching progress bars.

The job involves:

  • Watching files and DCPs delivered and checking for problems

  • Understanding of file formats, codecs etc
