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

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, 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, more impact and potential revenues.


"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. Further to this, 99.media became the film’s official distributor. They have successfully negotiated several deals on my behalf and brought in some very useful revenue. 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

If your film is selected, that is what we offer:

• 6-language professional subtitling and multilingual streaming on 99.media.

• Promotion through social media and international media partners.

• Screenings around the world generating new revenue.

• Free submission entry to Cheap Cuts Documentary Film Festival in London.

What we’re looking for above all is stories! Relevant, unique, moving, fun stories that get people thinking and talking with each other.

We’re looking for insightful, daring, caring documentaries with a universal message.

The films have to tell a story that is not otherwise being seen, or hardly being seen since we believe the power of documentary film is to reveal and enlighten.

A great and simple way to determine what we are after is to watch the films we have featured this far: https://www.99.media/en/films-en

• Non-fiction only.
• Short films (1-40 minutes).
• We require films to have all necessary rights secured for us to feature them.
• Please provide us with English subtitles if necessary.
• Submission fees are not refundable.
