Behind the Scenes is a membership-based community for film festival staff providing ongoing training and support. We deliver high quality content and products to you every month, guiding you through the steps to grow your festival. Plus, our active forum provides a safe space to get help on challenging problems. 

We're in the business of helping your festival thrive, of seeing you and your team at its best, and getting you back to your zone of genius. 

Behind the scenes

Support. Resources. Community.

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!

Learn More

Through our one on one consulting services and our online membership community, we've created multiple channels to help you overcome festival challenges and move your brand forward. Here you’ll find other festival staff working through the same kinds of steps toward festival growth and have a supportive group to learn alongside you.

The Behind the Scenes Membership community is about growing, together. We provide topical content each month, guiding you through the steps for implementation every week. The private forum allows members to ask questions and be certain that they are only interacting with other festival staff, helping to protect your brand image. With our tools and education you can meet your goals and create a thriving festival. We are beta testing now, with full launch coming Fall of 2018!
