Quick Festival Setup instructions
- Login to AutoDCP
- Go to your ‘account info|managed festival’ page
- Hit the plus button to add a festival
- once the festival is defined click the ’email’ icon to get the boilerplate letter, ie copy it
- go over to filmfreeway and create a new letter their to “send to submttters” or whomever you wish to send there, and paste the boilerplate, edit as you see fit, and send it I do suggest sending a test to yourself first before sending to the mass of people just to make sure things look good (or send to me and I can confirm the details….)
One caveat: You are welcome to activate a festival anytime, however if you plan on becoming an affiliate as well, make sure to enter your affiliate ID into the AFN field for the festival BEFORE you send your letters to your filmmakers, otherwise your affiliate account will not get credited. We suggest setting up and getting approved as an affiliate before setting up the festival to avoid this problem.
If you are already an affiliate, just the festival setup process.
