Should the following Tier 2: up to $3,000 USD in MANA, one-time payment grant in the Content Creator category be approved?


Filmrare-Cinematheque has been hosting movie screenings in our metaverse cinematheque every Saturday night at 6 pm UTC for the last 3 weeks. The response has been amazing and we reached over 100 avatars a night during our run. We are asking for your support so that we can acquire more content from indie filmmakers, distributors, and studios.

Grant size

3,000 USD

Beneficiary address



The way we acquire content is from a variety of places.

We use a digital rights marketplace like Vuulr where we negotiate a deal with the seller. We have been agreeing to pay $100 for 30 minutes of video for a 30+ run in the cinema.
We are hiring a program director who can get us in touch with genre filmmakers for a fee and that usually works to about $750/month.
We also reach out to rights owners to negotiate a deal.
So far we have agreed to pay for the following films which we will be showing over the next 2 months with a total payout of $800 pending.

Javelina Run - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10461524/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Rubbish Robbers - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10189360/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Mammiferi - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt16993832/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Il Capolavoro - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12213096/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

L’uno - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt13371582/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

REGIONRAT - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5677598/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

We intend to acquire at least 4 more titles costing between $400 - $1000.

Total expenditure is expected for the month of March and April.

Title acquisition - $1800

Program Scout/Director salary for 2 months - $1500

Total = $3300


We will start showing the acquired titles and program them in such a way that the maximum spread is achieved. We shall exhaust the films between March and April. Our Cinematheque is already live and can be verified every evening from 6 PM UTC.

Please do visit us at -5,49 in the Realm DG from February 17th for a short films marathon.
