Vancouver International Film Festival
critically acclaimed festival is one of the largest in North
America, featuring 300 films from 50 countries and drawing
close to 200,000 attendees.
The 1999 festival board wanted to generate broader media
coverage of press conferences and the annual Film and Television
Trade Forum, to find innovative ways of promoting films,
and to sell tickets over the Internet.
INSINC encoded preview clips of 30 different films, which
visitors to the VIFF website could watch on demand, and
then click to buy tickets. Press conferences, the Trade
Forum, speeches and other special events were netcast and
archived on the site, so members of the media and the public
had convenient desktop access.
The Festival's website was incredibly popular, media coverage
of special events increased, and the Festival had one of
its most successful years ever.
