L'agence du court métrage

How Bref became the first SVOD platform entirely dedicated to short films with Kinow

Bref, a magazine published by l'Agence du Court métrage, was a quarterly magazine published with a DVD. Gradually, the idea of ​​an online media offering short films, emerged.

Published by "L'Agence du court métrage", the magazine Bref was created in 1989 with the ambition to create a link between those who make short films, those who broadcast them and those who watch them. Since 2016, Bref has changed its formula, including a new website, brefcinema.com. The site is for all lovers of the 7th art, curious to discover the best of the short film.

Bref works on subscription, with a yearly formula (40 € / year) or a monthly one without commitment (4 € / month). The flexibility of the Kinow solution and the various payment solutions make it possible to offer the first month for free. The catalog is enriched each week with 3 new short films related to the current cinematographic news, focus around filmmakers, films spotted in festivals.

« Kinow is a real turnkey solution allowing us to easily and quickly develop our SVOD platform. One of the main advantages is that you do not have to develop a specific database, and can rely on a efficient e-commerce solution, adapted to the SVOD. Kinow has taken up the challenge of integrating and enabling the distribution of a short film catalog via a dynamic and creative interface designed by a partner agency. The team has been able to optimize the actual solution and adapt it to our specific needs: viewing statistical tools allowing the sharing of recipes to the beneficiaries of the films; optimization of customer management; developments related to the specificity of our coupled offer (online magazine / film); integration of a blog. »
