Hi Heather:

I could imagine that those professional intermediary platforms and/or
professional databases that are used by festival industry people (which I
find fascinating and want to start researching in more detail at some stage)
would be of interest to you.  Have a look at Festival Scope, Cinando (used
by Cannes Market) or Eventival, for instance.

If you want more info, let me know (off list).

Betreff: [Filmfestivalresearch] festivals and data use/sharing


I'm working on research on how film festivals use, manage, and share data.
One of my questions is about the existence of data sharing and collaborative
networks that integrate information across the festival circuit. I'm
wondering if any of you know of specific data networks (aside from imdb)
that would serve the purpose of, for example, a sort of union catalog of
films that appear in festivals each year. Any other insights or
articles/books about how festivals are using data to grow or manage
operations would be welcome. Thanks!
