Eventival is conceived to help you handle your film festival or centre's work from A to Z. In order to help you handle those activities Eventival doesn't, we have integrated it with a wide range of other film industry or generally useful solutions.
There are countless film databases in world, either created by fans for fun or by professionals for searching and referencing information by film industry professionals, journalists or film lovers.
Film festivals, Eventival's primary clientele, need a lot of data when planning and producing their events, and an integration between Eventival and Cinando, the online database for film professionals is great help that saves a lot of time and energy.
Cinando, by Marché du Film - Festival de Cannes, is the premier network offering film professionals tools to navigate the film industry: contacts, films, projects in development, market screening schedules, market attendees, screeners.
The unique integration between Eventival and Cinando gives Eventival users an opportunity to access the Cinando database and the ability to easily import people’s contacts and film profiles to grow and update their own databases.
Once you are using Eventival to collect, select, translate and proofread your film data, integrating it with your ticketing system is a natural next step. Eventival-ticketing integration means that instead of copy & pasting the data from Eventival into the ticketing system, it can be sent there in a short automated process. Some festivals cannot do this because they are bound to use the legacy ticketing. However, many already use good ticketing platforms, or think about doing so. Below you will find a hopefully constantly growing list of platforms integrated to a varying extent with Eventival.
Eventive integrates ticketing, pass management, scheduling, and audience data onto a single intelligent platform. Eventive help festivals fill more seats by enabling passholder ticket reservations, handling promotional emails and delivering marketing data. Eventive will even enhance the festival experience with an online film guide, easier check-ins and shorter lines. Eventive has recently teamed up with the VOD service provider CineSend in order to offer Eventive Virtual Festival, making your films and events available for secure, ticketed on-demand and live streaming through your very own Eventive site or embeds, as well as directly through its streaming TV Apps. Eventival integration with both Eventive and CineSend makes it possible to maintain your natural workflow and ask the filmmakers to upload their screeners through the Eventival interface right after your selection process has finished. You can handle the accreditation process, preparation of the data for publication and scheduling in Eventival as usual. When the time comes, rather than having to do this manually, you will be able to synchronise the prepared schedule with film information (and newly also the linked screeners) from Eventival to Eventive. In Eventive, you then set pricing policy, geoblocking and other restrictions. The added value of using Eventive Virtual Festival is that even people without accreditation can purchase tickets.
Eventive is integrated with your Eventival Account (therefore its users do not need an additional password to enter it).
Ticketack is a Swiss-made ticketing solution used by festivals, cinemas and concert venues, including all five film festivals that work with Eventival in Switzerland.
The integration includes Eventival accreditations interoperability, synchronisation with the Back Office and payment through Ticketack's payment system, Proxypay.
We have teamed up with Perfect System and created a seamless integration between Eventival and Perfect System’s Colosseum ticketing software. The connection with Colosseum will enhance the existing accreditation, membership and schedule planning modules in Eventival, while Colosseum’s greater flexibility will be good news for organizers struggling with the limitations of most regular ticketing systems. We are also hoping to open new possibilities for the organisers of cultural and social events facing the challenge of serving a mix of professional attendees and ticket purchasing audiences.
There are several services that simplify the way in which the audiovisual content gets to its destination.
Cinando Video Library is an online B2B digital solution, launched by Cinando, the film industry network created by the Marché du film in Cannes, the world's largest film market. Cinando VL allows film festivals and other film institutions to stream their selected films online. Clients of Cinando VL have their own dedicated website and can customise their own interface from the page design to the viewers, film lists and more. The platform uses the same high levels of DRM security as Cinando Screeners.
If you are a film festival or a film institution that uses the Eventival Festival Database (Eventival) as its data management and logistical platform, you should consider using the Cinando Video Library (CVL) solution to showcase your films to your industry delegates and clients. This digital solution launched by Cinando allows festivals, markets and other film institutions to stream their selected films online. With their own dedicated website and customizable interface, from the page design to the viewers & films lists, the service allows its clients festivals and film institutions to display their films to specific users in a DRM-secured environment. The integration between Eventival and Cinando VL has been available for several years now, and it aims to facilitate the data exchange between the two platforms. This means that if you are currently storing your film data in your Eventival film database and are interested in the Cinando Video Library service, you can avoid the otherwise mechanical and time-consuming activity of copy-pasting your film information into Cinando VL by exporting automatically the metadata from Eventival instead. This can even also include stills. If you are interested in these services or have any questions about the Cinando VL, you may write directly to [email protected]
CineSend is a cloud storage, conversion, and delivery platform based in Toronto that is trusted by thousands of the world's best film and TV creators, and that producers and distributors use to securely archive and send movies to festivals anywhere in the word.

Thanks to our new integration with Vimeo, your submitters can upload audiovisual content directly on your Visitor Page submission form and the videos will be stored in your Vimeo storage space.
We integrated Eventival Back Office with Shift72 already in the summer of 2020 when the pandemic made film festivals around the world explore online or hybrid formats. We are currently discussing with Festival Scope and Shift72 how the integration can be made even more useful and smooth.

Reelhouse’s distribution platform connects viewers and creators directly, unlocking unprecedented film experiences.

Over the years, several mobile applications have been developed that communicated with Eventival. To ensure the best possible experience for the mobile app users, two mobile apps have been integrated with Eventival more in-depth: the App4Fest, and the Eventival Mobile App, the result of an ongoing collaboration between Skeleton Software and Eventival.
A mobile app fully integrated with Eventival is here thanks to the collaboration with Skeleton Software. Participants of your festival can browse through the festival programme, check out the film details and venue locations and create their own screening schedule. On top of that, your guests will appreciate being able to browse through their personal itineraries, accompanying events or the Who is Here.
App4Fest is a tool for communication with festival visitors, providing them with the event's schedule in a detailed, easy-to-use layout and the possibility to create their own personalised programmes. App4Fest is developed by Ackee. The integration between App4Fest and Eventival allows the synchronization of data between Eventival and the app, such as the festival screening and events schedule, information about films and participants.
b.square is a B2B matchmaking event management platform able to fully manage pre, in and post-event needs, from subscription to participants satisfaction evaluation.

It allows to keep complete film proposals updated and always ready to be accessed by decision makers from around the world. Pitch the Doc also offers dedicated and customizable solutions for institutions conducting online or hybrid training and pitching programs.
The integration includes Eventival Account authentication.
The goal of the integration is to let film festivals using both Eventival and one of the film submission platforms integrated with Eventival easily transfer the films collected through the film submission platform into Eventival where they are further processed (confirmed, edited, programmed and forwarded to the website and printed media).
Film submission platforms can be integrated with Eventival in two ways: one doesn't require almost any programming on the side of the film submission platform because the submitted films go straight into Eventival, and the other one does require some programming but offers the festival a lot more flexibility in that it lets it use more features of the platform. You are welcome to contact us for the details of the integration.
We have linked Eventival with Festhome, a film submission portal mostly used in Latin America, for automated import of films.
Eventival Back Office and Film Festival Life, one of the world’s most popular online film submission platforms used by nearly 400 film festivals around the world, were integrated for several years before FFL closed down in 2021.
All data from films submitted via the French submission platform Docfilmdepot will soon be exportable into Eventival in a few clicks.
Movibeta submission platform has been serving filmmakers and festivals since 2009, and is known and used by over 700 feature and short film festivals, mostly in Spain, Italy and Latin America.
Movibeta’s service is free for film festivals and the platform is available in English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese and Greek.
FilmFetch is a platform that helps ensure that digital film can be sent and managed flawlessly in a sustainable way. Thanks to our integration, you can ask the filmmakers to upload their DCPs or screeners into your festival's FilmFetch account through the Eventival interface right after your selection process has finished, and then see the uploading status and the path and details of the DCPs and CPLs in the Eventival Back Office. If your VOD platform has a FilmFetch integration, you will be able to synchronise all your screeners when the time comes, rather than having to upload them manually.
A part of the basic Eventival package is a simple built-in mass (bulk) email system. It’s free of charge and our clients use it to send nearly 200,000 both automated “system emails” and press releases, newsletters and other mass emails per month. Eventival mass email system uses a dedicated SMTP server with a fixed IP address shared by all its clients. Before use, it has to be set to avoid the messages processed by it be labeled as spam.
While functional and reliable, this built-in mass email system does not have some of the features of paid systems hosted by companies whose only purpose is to provide this specific type of service (e.g. the statistics of opening emails). To give our clients an opportunity to benefit from these special features, Eventival is integrated it with some of these systems.
If you decide to use one of them instead of the Eventival mail server, you will have set an account with the company you select, make sure its service is ready to work, and set up the selected system as your mailing system in Eventival Setup.

Right at the start of Eventival, we were lucky to begin working with some great companies whose products or services we have been using still today.
Firefly is a branding agency and design studio with offices in New York City and Prague.
Tomas's and Dawna's friend, the unique visual artist and renowned graphic designer Jiwon Shin, already worked with Tomas when creating the logo of DataKal several years before Eventival started. In January 2009, hes studio created the logo of Eventival (http://fireflybranding.com/eventival) that has, by now, become known around the world.
Pro-idea is a Czech graphic design studio founded by Sergey Petukhov and Lubos Beranek around the time when Eventival moved from Fontainebleau to Prague. Eventival may have been their largest projects in 2009; Pro-Idea has since grown a lot and the two companies have been working together ever since.
Pro-Idea is responsible for the look of the Eventival Back Office, Eventival Visitor Page, Eventival Account, Eventival website as well as the websites of several clients or Eventival.
