Jen & Ursla

We are so glad you are here. We bring over a decade of experience developing and growing a thriving film festival, backgrounds as educators, and decades of experience in creating communications, fundraising, and partnerships to achieve program goals. We created Behind the Scenes to provide the community for film festival staff that we craved. Behind the Scenes moves beyond the basic forum approach to provide a private, guided, and supported learning experience, with the tools and templates you need to quickly grow your festival. We offer free consultation calls, a membership community with guided monthly content, and customized consultation packages to meet your festival needs. 

Hello there

Crafting a thriving festival

Get in touch

We are both educators, film lovers, and know what it takes to run a festival. Combined, we have a decade of hands-on experience as Director and board of a thriving film festival. We've combined our skills for marketing and logistics to help your festival scale quickly. Through our community you will gain access to the support, tools, and templates that we wish we'd had when we began!
