THE EVENTIVE STORY
Welcome to our step-by-step guide to the WOFFF21 Online festival platform eventive.
Eventive is an independent, industry-approved, film festival platform.
The guide shows you how to find out more about each of the 57 films that make up WOFFF21 here.
Then, if you’d like to join us at WOFFF21, it shows you how to buy either an individual programme ticket, giving you access to 1 programme of 7 or 8 short films, or to buy a festival pass, giving you access to all 57 short films at WOFFF21 Online.
Evenitive was created when Iddo Patt, filmmaker and founding board member of the Indie Memphis Film Festival, asked his son Theo, then a 15-year-old high school student, to build a festival website to support online festival audiences and filmmakers. Theo built Eventive.
We’re delighted to be teaming up with eventive – a solution created by a teenager – to host the films made by and about women old enough to be, well, Theo’s grandma and great-grandma!
A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE
You can have a look around our eventive festival website to get a feel for how it works before the festival kicks off. This gives you the chance to find out what’s on offer at WOFFF21 Online before you buy a ticket.
If you do buy a ticket, you’ll have to create an account with Eventive. You’ll need to supply an email address and a password to set up your account. There’s more about that below. But first, let’s have a look round the WOFFF21 eventive area.
Let’s start on the WOFFF21 WELCOME PAGE. Follow this link https://wofff21.eventive.org/welcome to our festival WELCOME PAGE
At WOFFF21 Online there are 57 Films divided into 8 Virtual Programmes (of about 7 or 8 films each), curated around particular themes, like POWER, HIDE AND SEEK and GUIDING LIGHT.
There are two ways to browse all the films on offer from the WELCOME PAGE.
At the top of the WELCOME PAGE you can see two buttons: FILM GUIDE and VIRTUAL FESTIVAL.
ClickING on the FILM GUIDE button takes you to an overview of all 57 films in the festival (it looks like Netflix or something similar) with movie posters for each of the films.
Here’s a link to the WOFFF21 FILM GUIDE: https://wofff21.eventive.org/films
If the name of a film isn’t written on the poster itself, you can find the name by putting your mouse over the poster and the film name will appear on screen.
If you’re browsing on a mobile phone, all the film titles will appear automatically.
You can click on a film you fancy, and it will take you to a page with more info on the film.
For example, if we click on the film poster for BEING ME IN CURRENT AMERICA, we come to a page that looks like this:
Here you can read more about the film, see what TAGS are associated with the film, including if there are any content warnings you might need to be aware of.
If there is a trailer of the film available, you can watch it by clicking PLAY TRAILER.
Below the main image, there’s an option to SELECT A SCREENING. If you click that, it will take to one of the 8 VIRTUAL FESTIVAL PROGRAMMES and, after 25 Sept, you can click to watch the film (and the other films in that Programme).
Now, let’s go back to the WELCOME PAGE and look at the VIRTUAL FESTIVAL area.
You can click this link to go back to the WELCOME PAGE https://wofff21.eventive.org/welcome and it takes you to the our festival WELCOME PAGE.
This time, if you click on the VIRTUAL FESTIVAL button, it takes you to an overview of all 8 Virtual Programmes at WOFFF21.
If you click on, say, Programme 4: Belonging, it takes you to a VIRTUAL PROGRAMME page where you can see a list of the 7 films in that programme.
After 25 Sept, you can click to watch that whole programme of films which have been curated around a particular theme.
