Is this acceptable to add to the site?
 
Is this acceptable to add to the site? It is called a "documentary", but it is more like a movie than a documentary. The "Talking Heads" are played by actors and reenactors. It will be released in February. I can post a scene and the trailer. Does anyone want the film's IMDB page? It was filmed using local & small time actors & historical reenactors. The film is 1hr, 30 minutes.
Here is the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seZpPzFlZXA
Here is a scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8D-yo45jJb0
Here is the IMDB page: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9127820/?ref_=ttmi_tt

Distribution?

Unless they somehow went back in time to conduct these interviews, this is nothing more than a movie in documentary form.

From looking at their sites it appears that it is straight to dvd/streaming so it is not eligible if we are classing it as a "film".

They don't know exactly what they will do with it. Want me to wait and see what happens after the Sundance Film Festival to see just how it is released?

Not sure yet? I'll get back to you once I know for sure. I'll ask the director on Facebook.

Those are all actors and reenactors.

Do straight to DVD releases fall under this category? Professional Titles only, no User created Media

Want me to talk with the director? He's in a Facebook group that I'm a part of.

My understanding was that it is just being self distributed by selling DVD/digital download. Only things that have a wide distribution through large networks like Amazon or Netflix are eligible. In other words, if it ends up on one of the big streaming services it would meet the distribution criteria for eligibility.

More broadly though, documentaries are not eligible automatically. This is sort or a grey area as it is a docudrama, but it would still have to be allowed as an exception. It is kind of hard to judge it just based on a trailer.

Well, the director said to me in a private Facebook message that they will be doing streaming services, DVDs, and most likely no theatrical runs except for maybe a few private screenings. Want me to wait & see what happens as we get closer to the release date, or should I just go ahead with creating the page?
