Tracker Description

The place to be if you like old/niche movies! Like its similars Karagarga and Secret-Cinema, Cinematik strives to be a tight community for arthouse/niche/foreign movie enthusiasts. Cinematik has an active community and forums where members can discuss these classic and rare movies in a friendly environment. Like its counterparts, Cinematik keeps away from Hollywood and Bollywood. You won’t find any new Hollywood blockbusters or mainstream movies here. I think it would be approprate to name Cinematik as a micro version of Karagarga. Whereas Karagarga has many rips, Cinematik does not have any DVD-rips or BD-rips. No surprises here, you will only find full DVDs and full BDs here. Cinematik has around 6000 users and 57000 torrents.

Maintaining a ratio without a seedbox or uploading your stuff is hard here, but you will be fine as long as you snatch the freeleech (Golden Torrent) torrents as soon as they are uploaded. However, keeping a good ratio can be a bit tricky as there is no bonus system implemented. Luckily, they have global freeleeches several times a year. Rules clearly state that you have to seed torrents to 1:1 ratio or for a minimum of 3 days. They also have these rules about your ratio:

People that have been members for more than 2 weeks and downloaded more than 12 GB, and fail to reach these requirements will get a warning:
Downloaded between 12 and 24 GB: 0.2 ratio
Downloaded between 24 and 48 GB: 0.3 ratio
Downloaded between 48 and 84 GB: 0.4 ratio
Downloaded between 84 and 150 GB: 0.5 ratio
Downloaded more than 150 GB: 0.6 ratio

As this is a very tight community, retention and speed of old torrents are not that good, but they are tolerable. Newer torrents seem to have better speeds.

Invites are very hard to come by. Invites aren’t handed periodically, you have to request them in a special forum thread and that requires a lot of activity.

Invites are awarded at staff discretion to members who have been recently and consistently active on the site. Examples of constructive activity include: downloading and then seeding back individual torrents either fully or for a long time; helping/assisting other members in the forums or in torrent comments; and of course uploading some material for us all to share.

Additionally, to request any invites you need to:
• be a Power User or above;
• have a global share ratio of 1.0 or above;
• have been a member for at least 12 months (6 months for more generous contributors to the site).

(exceptions could be made on an individual basis for user class "Uploader" and above).

They have a decent request and offer section where you can vote for the movies you would like to see uploaded.

In my opinion; along with Karagarga, Cinematik is a must have for arthouse/experimental/niche/cult/rare cinema lovers. This tracker is not for everyone. 95% of people won’t find Cinematik interesting. But it is a heaven for the remaining %5. It is paradise on Earth for those who love Criterion Collection movies!
