Eventival Back Office (EBO) is the world's most complete solution for planning, producing and managing film festivals and events regardles of type, size and location. EBO helps keep your data in order, facilitates an efficient division of labour, simplifies communication inside the team as well as with filmmakers and guests and takes care of pretty much any logistical need you can imagine. Whether you're after increasing your festival's impact, saving time or reducing costs, EBO will, over time, prove to be one of the best investments your organisations has ever made.
The Eventival Back Office 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, EBO 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 EBO 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 EBO 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.
Most also use EBO 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 Eventival Back Office apart from other film festivals platforms?
Obviously, EBO is not the only film festival management platform in the world. So why is the most successful one? Other platforms are usually used by only a handful of smaller festivals in their own country, as a result of which their teams have little experience working across borders, time zones and cultural differences. They also have far 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 EBO has been doing for years. They also often don’t grow: some have websites that haven’t changed since their launch, often because they simply have little to add in terms of features and clients. They’re also operated by very small teams which can mean painfully slow support. Because some are isolated from the industry for which they provide their services, they’re not integrated with other services and platforms festivals need to use. And finally, they often depend on external funding – you never know when they will run out of money and close down.
