Comments: 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

Having Eventival is like hiring a professional Festival Organizer.
