Film festivals provide the opportunity for upcoming filmmakers from around the world to showcase their work to large audiences of cinema fans and elite members of the filmmaking industry. Film festivals are typically an annual event, held over a course of a week or more hosted in the city of their choice. Now film festivals are turning to mobile apps to boosts their events into the future.
When discussing film festivals, the most iconic of the film festivals come to mind– referred to by the film industry as the “Big Three” the Cannes Film Festival, the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale), and Venice Film Festival – La Biennale di Venezia . These festivals, two of which date back to the 1930s, are known as a reference point for the film industry and serve as inspiration for the close to 3,000+ film festivals held around the world.
Over the years, both the Cannes and Berlin Film Festival, along with other important film festivals such as the Sitges Film Festival in Barcelona have taken an enormous leap toward technology, seeking to modernize their Film Festivals by adopting their very own Film Festival Mobile App.
These world renowned film festivals opt for their own film festival app to enable real-time interaction with their attendees regarding the film sessions and screenings, provide a handy guide for the festivals’ events in the palm of their guests’ hands and increase overall ticket sales while reducing the cost and waste caused by brochures and other printed material.
In addition to the organizational benefits of an app, the Film Festival app can improve the overall experience for all of their attendees.
Attendees are able to create a personalized planner before the event by reading all about the films on the festival app and marking select films as their “Favorites”. Once at the festival, push notifications from the organizers help inform them of last minute screenings or special events throughout the festival. The app can enable an increased level of interaction with the films and the film community- with the capability to vote, pose a question, chat and/or fill out a survey on the film they have just seen. Finally, for filmmakers or other professionals attending the event, a film festival app can provide networking possibilities for industry professionals to connect and arrange a meeting.
