Manchester – 4th October 2016


With GRIMMFEST 2016 about to hit the screens of Manchester’s Odeon Printworks cinema on the 6th October, Unique Digital is delighted to be able to provide DCP content management services to the ever expanding horror and cult film festival.

Entering its 8th year, the annual GRIMMFEST has become one of the largest genre film festivals in the UK outside of the capital.

Exhibiting over 30 Features across 4 days requires surety of content delivery from a number of sources and this is where Unique Digital offered to provide support to the GRIMMFEST team.

Greg Walker, GRIMMFEST’s Festival and Events Manager revealed that in discussion with the Unique Movie Transit team about a particular Feature delivery, there was a realization that the Unique team were in a position to help us manage all DCP content delivery needs. “Providing a centralized facility to receipt incoming DCP content from numerous sources and then to provide a single conduit of that content to the venue is exactly the workflow and service we were looking for. The service has made the usually quite precarious task of gathering content from around the world extremely simple and very painless!”

Nick Johnson, Unique Digital’s DCP Distribution Manager commented “We are delighted to be supporting the Manchester based GRIMMFEST, being based in Manchester where the festival is being held makes us proud in supporting such a recognized event. The management of DCP content is a service that Unique Digital offers across numerous territories with our Movie Transit product, so it seemed a natural extension of our services to become involved.”

GRIMMFEST runs at the Odeon Printworks Manchester from Thursday 6th October to Sunday 9th.
