IN-EDIT TV: The film must go on

By Cristina Álvarez Cañas. November 5, 2012


Barcelona’s In-Edit Festival is now over. Or maybe we could say that for many it has just started. This music documentary festival held in the city of Barcelona since 2003, and which at one time even had its satellite in Madrid, has surprised in this edition with a great new feature for all those who like high-quality virtual contents.

The idea, In-Edit TV, is an ad hoc platform that offers to its Spain-based users part of the festival’s program –25 percent, they say–, saving the audience a trip to Barcelona. But this video on demand (VOD) system –set up in collaboration with the Spanish site Filmin– goes further than that. It already includes 40 titles and the festival organisers promise to add even more previously unreleased films which will be available throughout the year. This first stage of the project is aimed at trying to alleviate, as the directors themselves say, 'the pending subject of the industry': the permanent distribution of the titles.

Celebrating its tenth edition, and having reached more than 30,000 spectators in 2011, the 'fourth screen' –as they have named it– will be a permanent communication channel with the audience 365 days a year. For the next edition, it could even reach other countries that already enjoy the 'physical' version of the festival, like Chile or Brazil.

The documentaries can now be accessed by alphabetical order, music genres and new titles; but also through specific categories such as biographies, industry, musicology, etc. In-Edit TV also includes a ranking of the titles best rated by the public to help the audience find the film they are looking for. The price of each film is different and paid through a credit system charged to the user’s account (1 euro = 1 credit). Film enthusiasts also have the option of purchasing more affordable vouchers.

On the occasion of its tenth anniversary and as an insight of what we can find, In-Edit has prepared a list with the best 100 music documentaries in history. Some of these essential titles –Joy DivisionLet’s Get LostThe Devil And Daniel Johnston– are already available on In-Edit TV and are the best way to dive into the surprising world of music documentaries.
