Arts Alliance Media is providing their Screenwriter Theatre Management System and software support to the Sundance Film Festival for the third year running at six festival screening locations across Park City, Salt Lake City and the Sundance Mountain Resort in Utah, from January 24 to February 3.
“The logistical challenges of running the Sundance Film Festival grow with its audiences every year, so we need systems and support we can rely on. AAM have provided excellent service and proven their solutions are the best in class year after year,” said Holden Payne, Sundance’s technical director of exhibition and production. “We’re expecting a record number of festival goers this year, and Screenwriter is indispensable in ensuring that the quality of our screenings is up to the same high quality as our programming.”
The Sundance Film Festival selects around 200 feature-length and short films every year, and in 2018 was attended by a record 125,000 people.
Screenwriter, installed on over 40,000 cinema screens worldwide, enables staff to monitor screens, schedule features, trailers and advertisements and control playback all from one intuitive interface. As well as automating tasks common in theatre operations, such as playlist and schedule building, it ensures that the correct Key Delivery Messages – the security keys required to unlock content for playback are in place.
Patrick Foley, chief executive officer of Arts Alliance Media said, “We’re thrilled that the Sundance Institute has selected AAM as their software partner for the third year running. It is a testament to Screenwriter’s reliability and flexibility that it continues to seamlessly support the Sundance Film Festival as they scale their operations up.”
