SIDEWALK CINEMA SUBMISSION DETAILS:

The screen size is 1024 pixels by 768 pixels. These dimensions are very common for web browsers and computer monitors, so most software will have an export setting of 1024x768. 

SUBMISSIONS for Sidewalk Cinema should be as a DIGITAL COMPUTER FILE burned to a disk or on a flashdrive, NOT burned as a chapter on a DVD intended for a DVD player, and should have the following parameters:

STILL IMAGES should be in jpeg format. (pdfs will not work). They should be 1024 x 768 or smaller.

VIDEO FILES should be in quicktime (.mov) or windows media viewer (.wmv). They should also NOT be set as "streaming video." The ideal short video is just a couple of minutes long, is smaller than 30MB, and set at MEDIUM resolution. YouTube resolution is too low, and most high resolution exports are going to be too large of a computer file.

OK brilliant filmmakers, let's be clear about something... Yes, yes, we're sure your brilliant 27 minute short film is the most amazing thing we've ever seen, but we simply cannot get something longer than a couple of minutes to stream cleanly to each of the windows. Sure, send it in, but we're not going to be able to put it in the window. Also, anything with violence, nudity, language, or ANYTHING stronger than a proverbial "PG" rating is not going to be put in the window. Please be nice. 

Please send submissions attention Topher to:

RESERVED TO FIGHT
THE HARDEST BATTLES ARE FOUGHT AT HOME

Directed by Chantelle Squires
Produced by Manju Varghese and Coby Broyles
Featuring Mark Patterson, Matt Jemmett, Earl Simmons,
Chris Nibley, Terry Haskell and Ray Howarth

In 2003, Fox Company, 2nd Battalion, 23rd Marines was the first reserve unit activated for Operation Iraqi Freedom. They were also the first to return home.

Reserved To Fight shares the experiences of four young Marines as they readjust to civilian life after serving in Iraq. The film is an intimate portrayal that explores the veterans feelings of isolation, difficulty relating to their loved ones and the reality of coming to terms with psychological wounds.
Reserved To Fight will broadcast Nationwide on PBS throughout the month of November 2008. Please visit www.reservedtofight.com and check local listings for screening times in your area. Screening times will be updated weekly.
If you miss the November broadcast on PBS, the DVD is also available on our website for purchase.
