Having Eventival is like hiring a professional Festival Organizer.

We could manage to organize all of our festivals works inside Eventival. Our mistakes rate dropped by a considerable amount. It gave us the confidence to expand our festival into different fields and programmes.

Pros

Eventival is everything you'll need and everything you never thought you are going to need. Scheduling the screening has never been easier. Advanced search and customized exports give you thousands of options to fulfill your needs. Powerful email platform with hundreds of merge fields to integrate inside emails. The translation system for publications is well implemented. Advanced access permission for users. The logic behind Eventival as its backbone is notably great. Everything in Eventival is customizable. Best support I've ever seen. Moral attitude towards extra requests you will have in the future in terms of payment for your customizations.

Cons

The visitor page (user account for end users) is not responsive and mobile friendly. Might be a little bit expensive for small or non-profit organizations.

After three years of using Eventival we cannot live without it!

The LET‘S CEE Film Festival is one of the fastest growing festivals in Austria, with 162 films, nearly 400 screenings and around 150 film guests only during the last edition. We somehow managed the first editions with a lot of Excel sheets, emails, phone calls and meetings, but immediately after implementing Eventival we experienced the huge difference in the speed and clarity of our workflow. For a long perspective you simply need a good tool to make your and your team’s life easier. Not to mention the tireless efforts of [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and his team to keep their customers well informed and connect them with each other during several festivals they attend. Conclusion: With Eventival we have found not only an effective, reliable and proved festival software but also new festival friends. After three years of using Eventival we cannot live without it!

Pros

We really appreciate using Eventival in our daily work, and the fact that it helps us saving time, nerves and money. Thanks to the fact that it combines all needed futures in one software, we have implemented it so far in several teams, like the guest management team (where Eventival helped us improving contacts with our guests, while providing them with information on a regular base without writing thousands of individual emails); the film programming team (starting with collecting of submissions till quick, easy and error-free scheduling of screenings and events incl. individual plans for location managers, guests and moderators); the event team (where the easy and clear invitation process for the opening and award ceremony makes us every time feel sure that we haven’t forgotten anyone and the room will be full) and the accreditation team (where we even were able to collect handling fee through the Eventival!). We appreciate the fact that the software has been constantly developed and enhanced with new functions, while on the other side it can be easily adapted to individual needs of every event organiser. Last but not least we would like to mention the exceedingly friendly, enthusiastic and patient support team which makes you feel very safe in every matter.

Cons

So far, we haven’t found any but we have an advice: Be sure to invest enough time and energy in a proper training. Once you understand how the software works, using it will be very simple. In case you have the chance to be trained in Prague at the Eventival office – go for it, it will bring you both, a lot of knowledge and fun.

An excellent central database of festival activities

Overall, the Eventival software is fantastic. It has streamlined many of our basic festival operations in year 1 of our adoption, with many of the more granular operations expected to be streamlined in year 2. Being able to query the database and then export pretty much anything that you need for web or print design/marketing within a few minutes of knowing the requirement. Being the first festival in Ireland to adopt the software, we faced a lot of unfamiliarity from our local film community. Now that we have had it in use for a year, much of the customer support issues we faced in 2018 will not be present. The cons I have found with the software are minor compared to the overall pros obtained by continued and widespread use in our team. The software itself is massively thorough, which can lead to an inexperienced/less than technical user being overwhelmed, but the Eventival team are aware and are continually updating and improving the end user experience of the software.

Pros

Powerful mass email functionality Quick, reliable and helpful support team The centralisation of our film festival's primary data stores, making for easier GDPR compliance Advanced search and export capabilities Ease of use for film review Ease of use for staging multiple layers of film submission and related data capture (submission > full marketing data post selection > technical information, all in one flow) Custom data capture form design Cinando integration - this makes it easy to research and gather info on non-submitted titles that programmers are interested in

Cons

Unresponsive (non-mobile) design of Visitor Page and back office High learning curve for the less than technically literate, training videos would be amazing Filesize limit of 10mb, no support for TIFF images Certain limitations on exporting data, much is exportable, but some tasks will require doing two separate exports to obtain all data, depending on requirements of your export Inability to create mass email template outside of setup

Event management at its best

I first met Eventival in 2016 - it has come a long way since then. I am very pleased with the product and I am grateful to the developers and custmer support speciakists at Eventival: they are doing a truly wonderful job!

Pros

Eventival is a top notch tool to help organize and run any large scale event We use it to organize a yearly film festival with screenings, guests, ticketing, flights and accomodation as well as numerous side-events involved. The team is rather huge and the diversity of tasks and projects requires precision, ease of access to relevant information delegated to the right teams in a timely fashion. Eventival took some time to figure out but the wonderful (and prompt!) customer service team in Prague helped us all the way, whenever needed. Ultimately, Eventival's flexibility and immensely customizable features made the submission and accreditation process, guest coordination, screenings and special events run smoothly both to everyone's satisfaction (the team, the audience, the film professionals, all third parties involved). I would highlight, in particual, such features as the assignement of tasks, the coordination of multiple boards and lists, and the mass email option (a life and time saver). In case you are in the business of coordinating any large-scale event, and you are looking for ways to make your life easier and your project even more of a success, Eventival is definitely worth considering.

Cons

It took quite a while to get familiar with the whole of the platform. This is definitely not a program you want to jump into and start applying it to any larger scale event without training/tutorials - make sure to allow yourself and your team enough time to get the hang of it before anything else, otherwise it can prove a confusing experinence. The mobile version could perhaps be a tad more elaborate and user-friendly on the visitor page end.
