What I love (and always have) about Festival Genius is that it drastically simplifies the festival-going process. Scheduling at a festival is everything: if you can do it, you’re set. If not, boy are you in for a lot of boredom and missed screenings. Changing up that schedule on the fly is another headache on top of making it in the first place. In that way, Festival Genius takes the pain out of the whole process.
We are a young festival, without a lot of money, and the [Festival Genius] product improved our online capabilities from the start in a way we never could have done ourselves. They integrate their scheduling software right into your existing website, and it makes your entire site more professional and user-friendly. The software is easy to use, and the staff at [Festival Genius] is great and patient. Its a great service that we will use again and again. Our audiences loved the calendar options in [Festival Genius], that allowed them to organize their entire weekend to make sure they can see as many films and panels and attend as many parties as possible. Many people told us that our website was one of the best film festival sites they had ever used in terms of its user-friendliness and interactive tools. Of course they meant the [Festival Genius] software.”
