Eventival is an event technology company active mainly in the entertainment industry. Its film festival management application is the world's most widely used film festival data management and logistical tool.
Eventival was founded in 2008 in France by media entrepreneur Adrian Johnson, former MOFFOM festival manager Dawna Cha, and festival organiser and film industry entrepreneur Tomas Prasek.
Originally planned as a "light", web-based alternative to the DataKal software Tomas helped create at the Karlovy Vary IFF and then brought to over 20 film festivals including Dubai, Goa, Mar del Plata, Rome, Thessaloniki or Tribeca, Eventival eventually became a fully independent product. In 2009, the company recolated to Prague where a new team of developer began to work on an all-in-one solution for the planning and organisation of film festivals that would empower their teams in all stages of the event, help simplify their proceses, improve their communication, increase their visibility and impact and provide better services to their professional visitors and regular audience.
Today, Eventival is widely regarded as the leader in film festival technology. While the Eventival Back Office and Eventival Visitor Page, both forming the most widely used film festival software in the world, remain its core products, other products for the film industry (namely the Eventival Submission Platform, and the Filmodrome database) are in preparation. More and more, the company also serves as a provider of globally applicable know-how, skills and experience that make the work of festivals and audiovidual organisations all over the world easier, more efficient and fun.
While most of Eventival's clients are film festivals and events, its software is also used by conferences and cultural, social and business events.
Eventival has clients in over 40 countries and its services are used by nearly half a million filmmakers, film industry professionals and other people all over the world.
Dozens of people have contributed their ideas, skills and deditation to the creation of Eventival since the time the company was founded near Fontainebleau in 2008, We immensely appreciate the support and patience of all the festival organisers who trusted us when this unique and unusual company was merely an ambitious idea.
We are constantly growing.
