Arts Alliance Media has extended its software partnership with the San Sebastián International Film Festival and local systems integrator Kelonik, enabling AAM’s Producer and Screenwriter cinema systems to efficiently manage all the festival’s content and scheduling.
This is the eighth consecutive time AAM has supported the festival, which is now celebrating its 70th year.
This year’s SSIFF will show select titles to an international audience of spectators, specialized media, and industry professionals while promoting projects in development and business opportunities for creators, producers, and distributors.
To manage all network operations from the festival’s headquarters, Screenwriter will be used in conjunction with Producer to allow technical operators to maintain comprehensive control and visibility over all screens and content, while Kelonik provides technical assistance and local support.
“We’re delighted to extend our relationship with Arts Alliance Media for another festival”, said Lucas Iaccarino, technical manager at SSIFF. “Screenwriter has played a critical role in the recent history of SSIFF by helping us deliver outstanding technical performance by way of simple content management and network visibility, while further developing the way we operate.”
Responsible for scheduling features, trailers and advertisements, monitoring screens, and controlling playback for more than 42,000 screens worldwide, AAM’s Screenwriter remains the most widely deployed theatre management system in the world. When integrated with Producer, an overarching Enterprise TMS which displays a real-time view of each screen Screenwriter is connected to, SSIFF staff can automate daily tasks remotely for simple, time-efficient operations.
Roberto Marabotto, vice president of sales for EMEA at Arts Alliance Media, added, “We’re very excited to continue working with SSIFF and Kelonik and be part of their landmark 70th festival. SSIFF show great ambition to innovate and use software in creative ways and we have proven throughout our relationship how versatile and reliable our services are when handling high-profile events.”
