Eventival Festival Platform is the most complete software solution for planning and producing film festivals and events of all types and sizes. Its tools help improve the festival's image and increase its impact, reduce costs, save time, simplify communication with filmmakers and guests, conserve energy, improve division of labour and simplify logistics. Eventival has been around over over a decade and has more users than all other film festival platforms combined.

The Eventival Festival Platform (EFP) is used by organisation producing one large annual event (a film festival), teams working simultaneously on a number of smaller events (workshops, seminars etc.) throughout the year, as well as entities that organise events only sporadically but rather serve as an information centres for a particular constituency.

Information Hub and Contact Database
First and foremost, EFP is a hub for all your personal, company, film, event and project data (i.e. everything previously kept in Excel or Google sheets) which is entered, imported, stored and archived and is always accessible online. Because EFP is integrated with Cinando, its users have access to all the people, film and company data in Cinando which they can import.

Many of our clients also use EFP as a CRM to keep in touch with theit current and potential sponsors, donors and suppliers and keep the history of communicating with them. Using the built-in mass mailing system, they send mails, newsletters, press releases, etc.

Logistical toolbox
Most also use EFP as a logistical toolbox to help handle calls for registration, sell and print badges, gather film submissions, do the judging and selection, publish all the information about the films and people related to them and all festival events on your website, handle all guest logistics (invitation, hotel reservations, organising travel and transfers), etc.

Such a large and widespread user community has, over the years, led to the creation s to the createdAnd all benefit from the shared knowledge of thousands of peers around the world, experience an unparalleled flexibility and enjoy our renowned support.

What sets EFP apart from other film festivals platforms?
Several other film festival management platforms do exist, but when compared with EFP, a few things become clear. To begin with, the other platforms are usually used by only a handful of smaller festivals in their own country which means little experience working across borders, time zones and cultural differences. They also have much fewer users – which means that you can’t really tell how stable they are; that only becomes evident when the system has to handle hundreds of thousands of data transactions, something EFP has been doing for years. They also don’t really grow: some of their websites haven’t changed since their launch several years ago, often because they simply have little to add in terms of features and clients. They’re also usually operated by only a few people which can mean painfully slow support. Because they are isolated from the film industry for which they would like to provide their services, they’re not integrated with other services and platforms festivals need to use. Last but not least, they usually depend on external funding – you never know when they will run out of money and close down. And we’re rather not add that they are copycats rather than pioneers.
