Eventival Account is a single sign-on solution, a user account that allows access to all applications and websites created by or integrated with Eventival. It is used to log into both the Eventival Back Office and Visitor Page, as well as a growing number of other integrated applications and websites.
What is the Eventival Account?
Eventival Account is a Single Sign On (SSO) system using secure authentication to let its owners log in with the same Username and Password to all Eventival applications as well as certain third party applications and websites.
Thousands of festival team members as well as over 600,000 filmmakers, industry professionals and festival guests all over the world access Eventival daily to communicate with each other. Rather than having separate credentials for each event, they can use one Eventival Account (or, alternately, their Facebook or Google login) to access them all. Our support deals directly with all Eventival Account related issues, so there is no work for our clients' staff.
A provider of an authenticated web applications can delegate the authentication function to Eventival. When a user tries to gain access to a secure resource on the third party website, they are redirected to the Eventival Account login page. Here they will see an explanation of why they need to log in with their Eventival credentials. Any data which is to be shared with the third party will also be listed on this screen. Once authentication has succeeded, the user is redirected back to the referring site along with a token identifying them as having logged in via Eventival.
Eventival Account also opens possibilities for promotion of organisations using the platform, as well as for various forms of collaboration and exchange of services, know-how and information. While already a big improvement, it is only the first step on our way towards greater convenience when planning, producing and communicating with film, music and other cultural, social and business events.
