Film Festival Alliance

Monthly Archives: December 2017

The FFA Board is excited to announce it is seeking new board members! We’re looking for a handful of film festival professionals (or well-financed film festival enthusiasts!!) who would like to lend their time, talent and connections to help take the organization to the next level and to shape the future growth of the alliance.

Candidates for the board will be presented to members leading up to the annual meeting of the Alliance during the Arthouse Convergence. All active members of the Alliance will get a chance to cast their vote on the final candidates. The results will be announced during the annual meeting. To nominate yourself or someone else, please complete this form by January 4th.

We are gearing up for the 5th annual Film Festival Alliance @ Art House Convergence (FFA@AHC), which is packed to the brim with many great sessions and panels — including new discussions on Workplace Harassment, and Persevering Through Natural Disasters.

PLUS, we’re adding two special events:

SOCIAL FABRIC: T-SHIRT EXCHANGE
We know you love your event’s shirts — and want other festival professionals to sport them in their towns. Fill the empty space in your luggage with a few extra shirts, and exchange them with other festivals at our official T-shirt Exchange (time TBD.) You may go home with a new wardrobe AND some clean clothes!

BEFORE THEY RAN THE PLACE: SHORT FILM PROGRAM
Before you became a festival professional, were you a director, actor, producer or worked on a short film? If so, send a link to jon@filmfestivalalliance.org, and we will showcase during a special screening. If possible, send your shorter works so we can show as many as possible in 60 minutes. All entries accepted (the easiest festival you ever entered).

AIRPORT/SUNDANCE SHUTTLE
If you have not yet completed the form to reserve a space on the shuttles — DO SO NOW before space fills up.

LODGING:
It appears that the Zermatt and Homestead are SOLD OUT. We recommend checking Airbnb. If you are in need of a roommate or have extra space, please let us know and we will try and help out!

More information is forthcoming — we will send updates as more events and sessions are confirmed and you can check out the Full Conference Schedule.

We look forward to seeing you in a few weeks and hope you enjoy a happy & peaceful holiday season.

Cheers!
