I recently finished my first feature lenght fiction film shot on HDV. Now Im sending it to festivals. as I have no money for for a 35mm blowup, i must provide the screeningcopies in an electronic format. I found one festival that acepts also 6mm Digital. I have no idea what this is, but as the other formats are only for SD resolution (Beta and Digi-Beta) it might be interesting.
does anybody know abouth it?

thanks
daniel

---I think that's miniDV and it's variants.
^mm being the width of the tape.
