Do I need multiple DCPs for Multiple theaters?

Generally, no! Since your DCP is really just a folder full of files, it can be copied easily for distribution to multiple theaters. The caveat here (see “What’s a CRU” below) is that most DCP playback systems require a very specific type of drive to ingest the file.
If you’ve got a short film you’re submitting to multiple festivals, you may be able to just send them the same download link we provide.

We do often create multiple deliverables on CRU cartridge format for features opening in multiple venues simultaneously. We can drop-ship directly to the venues for you, and only charge the encoding fee once.
