"We are thrilled to see so much amazing content submitted to the DivX Film Festival, including a huge interest in the interactive content from the online community," said Darrius Thompson, Cofounder, Senior Vice President of Strategy and New Business at DivX, Inc. "The Stage6 platform connects the end-user to the filmmaker, eliminating the middle-man and creating a fusion of ideas to bring growth and inspiration to build a better digital media future."

"The advanced features of DivX gave the whole movie watching experience an extra dimension, allowing the viewer a tiny glimpse into our (the directors') minds," said Michelle Pettit-Mee and Kheri Batal, second prize winners for their film, "The Snow Witch." "It also allowed, with the use of subtitles, other viewers to follow the story and enjoy it in a way they wouldn't have (been able to) without them."

"The advanced features allowed me to do Spanish subtitles for my film and I've received numerous messages from Spanish speaking viewers who thanked me for providing them so they could understand what was going on," said Adrian Fulle, second prize winner and fiction genre winner for his film, "Nines." "Creating the extra features was really easy to do. That kind of tool is invaluable to an indie filmmaker like be able to get my movie out there to a wider audience is simply awesome."

"I was really impressed with the quality and breadth of submissions from an international community. Whether live action, animated or mashups, DivX tools allowed creators, big on talent and vision, to develop studio-quality productions with little or no budget," said Rodney Satterwhite, Genius Products, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. "Aspiring filmmakers now have the tools and a serious forum where their stories can be witnessed by a worldwide audience. Big kudos to the folks at DivX for providing Stage6, a platform which delivers truly meaningful content."
