ENGLISH (↓versión española abajo↓)

“99.media is a carefully curated selection of documentaries from around the world swooping down into extraordinary lives.” — Rob Alderson, WePresent

99.media is a new kind of documentary film festival: both online and in real life.

It is a free and not-for-profit video platform streaming documentaries in 6 languages (English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German and Italian) + a series of live screenings in different cities where our languages are spoken.

Our objective is to democratize documentaries thanks to multilingualism and to help filmmakers get wider audiences and more impact.

°°°°°

"99.media has embarked on a beautiful campaign to share films with the world. Subtitling my film from Arabic and English into a half-dozen languages opens the door for cross-cultural impact in ways I’ve always dreamed about. Their initiative to share powerful works of art with the world is a noble calling, and I’ve watched as my film has reached new people. I’m grateful for the opportunity to have my film play on their platform."
— Matthew K. Firpo, filmmaker

"99.media translated my documentary into 5 additional languages, ultimately helping the film reach a much wider audience, and become globally relevant. Films are made to be seen, and reaching an international audience like this is invaluable”.
— Lukas Shrank, filmmaker

“My short documentary was translated into 5 languages by 99.media, which helped it gain a lot more exposure and massively increased its global reach. I have a lot of respect for, and trust in the team, who has always dealt with me in a professional and honest fashion and who I believe has a real passion for short film and a lot of respect for filmmakers.”
— Andy Oxley, filmmaker

ESPAÑOL

“99.media: Una selección de documentales de todo el mundo que narran historias extraordinarias.” — Rob Alderson, WePresent.

99.media es una plataforma que difunde gratuitamente documentales subtitulados en varios idiomas. Aquí encontrará historias de todos los lugares del mundo y películas con un mensaje universal, para conocer mejor el mundo que le rodea.

Nuestra dinámica es similar a la de un festival. Los realizadores nos envían sus documentales para darles una mayor difusión. Si estas películas corresponden a nuestra línea editorial las subtitulamos en 6 idiomas. Cada película seleccionada obtiene una importante difusión que abarca más de la mitad del planeta.

Además, organizamos proyecciones de las películas seleccionadas en locales específicos en todo el mundo. Así, cada película constituye un evento colectivo que fomenta el diálogo y la cohesión social.

Nuestro objetivo es hacer llegar el documental al mayor público posible y difundir esas historias que pasarían inadvertidas, y que son cosas que le ocurren al 99% de la humanidad.

°°°°°

"99.media ha adaptado mi corto documental a cinco idiomas. Esto le ha dado mucha más visibilidad y ha aumentado su visionado a nivel mundial. Tengo plena confianza y respeto por el equipo de 99.media. Confío en su profesionalismo y honestidad. Me parece que tienen una auténtica pasión por el documental y un gran respecto por los realizadores.” — Andy Oxley, realizador

"99.media tradujo mi película a 5 idiomas adicionales para hacerla más accesible y que tuviera así más proyección internacional. Las películas están hechas para ser vistas y por lo tanto llegar a un público internacional, no tiene precio." — Lukas Shrank, realizador

The international film festival will begin July 9th and then run through the end of PopCon.

The film festival will be honoring films of several pop culture genres, including sci-fi, fantasy, comics, gaming, anime, horror, internet culture, and thriller!

PopCon continues to bring some of the largest names in pop culture to Indianapolis each year, but the event’s true mission is to give creators – of all kinds – a platform to find new audiences. Instead of focusing on one specific fandom, PopCon flips the script on the typical con experience by focusing on all genres of pop culture fandom. The film festival is an obvious expansion of that mission.

The film festival will be in addition to all the other programming at PopCon over the event’s weekend. The 4th Annual PopCon Podcast Awards, the 7th Annual Ultimate Cosplay Championships, and hundreds of fan panels and workshops will be alongside video gaming, laser tag, escape rooms, state-of-the-art virtual reality offerings, and 24-hour board gaming. PopCon will also continue to have the best selection of vendors for fans to enjoy.
