New Festhome TV for festivals

Logo of Festhome
Publié: 04 May 2020


 
 


Our VOD channel Indiehome is now called Festhome TV with a fully renovated interface.

Festhome TV is an integral tool that will allow you to host the films selected by your festival for its online exhibition, be it paid or free of charge for viewers (both options are available): you have at your disposal tools to move your films to different sessions, to control the tickets and viewing statistics, to create sessions (if necessary, you may choose different activation dates for each session). And you may also choose if you want the films shown in full HD or HDReady, if you want the films stored in your Vimeo PRO / Business account or in our own servers, if you want a basic or a full DRM protection (the cost varies with each combination of options you choose), if you want viewers from all over the world to have access to the festival of you’d rather block the access so that just a few countries can have it. Furthermore, you can create programmer and juror accounts, you may use the voting tool to create an audience award, and you may offer this online version of the festival for different viewing devices.

It’s a complete tool to host your festival online at a really affordable cost.

A close and recognisable example we can provide is the Mecal Pro, 22nd Barcelona International Short and Animation Film Festival: last March they contacted us seeing they couldn’t host the presential screenings they had organised. In just a few days we could set up a festival with more than 250 films in its online version, with similar sessions to those of their presential screenings and with a warm reception on the part of Mecal’s regular audience (the online version of which will remain open until May, 26th)

This proves that the current context does not imply your festivals are forced to disappear or be postponed, since you have another tool, Festhome TV, that will allow you to reformulate your festival and offer it to your audience in a different version, which in any case respects the event’s selection, choices and identity.

We have created a new marker / tag for festivals that are forced to postpone their dates due to restrictions caused by the Coronavirus.


As a festival, on the "Edit" page you will find two buttons, the orange button "Postponed Festival" in case your festival varies in its celebration dates (even if you still do not know the new ones) and the green "Festival OK" which you can use to remove the postponement tag or if you already have the new definitive dates of celebration.


The filmmakers will also have access to this information in the list of festivals , once inside a postponed festival, under the title you will see an indicator that will tell you if the festival has been postponed and, in the cases where it is known, the new dates for the event.

COVID-19 - Information from Festhome

Logo of Festhome
Publié: 25 Mar 2020


Dear Friends,


We hope that you and your families and friends are well in these uncertain times. At Festhome we are no stranger to the serious crisis that the world is going through. However, we want you to know that we remain at your disposal, although we have taken the necessary precautions and have fully embraced remote working for all of our team: #stayhome. Due to these special circumstances, we want to offer our services and coding skills that may be useful in the coming weeks and months, either to create new tools or help you use existing tools such as Indiehome TV, online festivals, private video libraries, private film links, etc.


In addition, we have launched an online festival with a very simple philosophy adapted to this moment: that filmmakers who are confined to their homes may create and share pieces filmed during these atypical days with everyone. We call it Stop Virus Film Festival and it will be available for free at Indiehome TV . There are no entry or submission fees , it is totally free for spectators and filmmakers, and we will collect donations from viewers of the festival that will go entirely to research on the coronavirus .


Tips and suggestions for Festival Organizers


Many festivals have seen their festival dates affected and all must follow the recommendations and obligations of their governments. But, given the position of Festhome as a platform, we have been able to view some trends and want to share them, and add a few suggestions, to minimize the damage caused by COVID-19, both to filmmakers and festivals:



  • We are seeing that in most cases, the call for entries dates are not changing and the vast majority of festivals are choosing to keep them intact or extend them in a variable way as events unfold.

  • As for the dates of the festival, and although some cancellations are taking place, we see that most are opting for postponments and in a few cases, some festivals are also offering a part of their programming online (pay per view).

  • In cases of cancellation, we see that these festivals (and we recommend) that current submissions are kept for the next edition. We also request that you contact the filmmakers, as some of them may have seen their schedules altered and may request to be allowed to withdraw their films.

  • In cases of postponement, we also recommend that for the moment and due to the impossibility of planning at any level, an estimated date for the festival is announced. Due to the competition for the availability of spaces that will occur after this crisis, we recommend staying in touch and frequently informing the managers of the spaces about the possible dates as events unfold.

  • If you have advertising contracted with us, we are open and you can ask us about possible changes in dates and spaces as a result of these changes you may have to make.


In any case, we believe that communication with the filmmakers is very important. At Festhome we have many tools to help you communicate quickly and efficiently, both with messaging systems and using the specific page of your festival to keep giving information about your festival′s intentions to filmmakers.


We reiterate that we are at your disposal to help you, and we hope that this crisis will be over soon.
