“Will you accept this FestiVote? I certainly will! As a quick efficient way to pick your favorite films at festivals, it gives roses a run for their money.”

“My film won an audience award at our first Film Fest and I went on to tour festivals with my film around the country. You work hard to get people out to see your film, but the voting process varied wildly from festival to festival and we were always nervous about people remembering to turn in their ballots, when the votes would be counted, when we would find out if we won, etc. Having an app like Festivote, that is easy to use, and is consistent from festival to festival, would streamline the process and remove a lot of uncertainty for the filmmakers. I’m all for it.”

Festivote created a technology solution for the antiquated voting in the film festival business. The platform offers enormous value for film festivals to have real data and analytics, which will provide the studios to understand the importance of what films they are buying! Its a win for the consumer, the filmmakers, the studios, and the festivals. And the best part is how passionate the founders are about improving the industry they love. Watch this space!

Solutions are the nucleus of innovation & progress. Embracing technology as a catalyst for positive change is what drives me to bring FestiVote to the filmmaking community. A hybrid mutt from Greece & Brazil, I’ve called Los Angeles home for the past 15 years. After winning numerous awards at various film festivals through paper ballot voting (!?!) and seeing firsthand the stress that filmmakers endure to get noticed, I decided to make FestiVote a reality.

Founder | COO

Living in Los Angeles and hailing from the sunshine state, being landlocked long term was not an option. With a theater background and a love for film and television, my curiosity and dedication to show business never ceases to waver. As an actor utilizing FestiVote, I am able to combine the creative aspect of performing with a system that understands engagement. This brings ease and efficiency to the beautiful chaos of film festivals that I’ve always been enchanted by.
