Arts Alliance Media Powers San Sebastián International Film Festival for the Ninth Consecutive Event

71st Annual San Sebastian International Film Festival
London ( September 19, 2023 ) -

Arts Alliance Media (AAM), the global leader in digital cinema software and services, has extended their software partnership with the prestigious San Sebastián International Film Festival (SSIFF) to enable Producer and Screenwriter to manage all content and scheduling for a ninth consecutive event.

Celebrating the festival’s 71 st event, SSIFF will show select titles to an international audience of spectators, specialised media, and industry professionals while promoting projects in development and business opportunities for creators, producers, and distributors.

To manage all operations from the festival’s HQ, Screenwriter will be used alongside Producer, AAM’s Enterprise TMS, enabling users to harness time-saving task automation and maintain comprehensive control over all screens and content, while Kelonik, a long-time partner of AAM and trusted technology facilitator for SSIFF, will provide technical assistance and local support.

“After the success of previous events, extending our relationship with Arts Alliance Media was never in doubt,” said Lucas Iaccarino, Technical Manager at SSIFF. “By enabling access to Producer with Screenwriter, AAM’s supportive technical team has allowed us to refine content management practices and explore new functionality for improved technical performance.”

Responsible for scheduling features, trailers and advertisements, monitoring screens, and controlling playback for over 44,000 screens worldwide, AAM’s Screenwriter remains the most powerful, widely deployed TMS in the world. When integrated with Producer, an overarching Enterprise TMS which displays a real-time view of each screen Screenwriter is connected to, SSIFF staff can automate daily tasks remotely for simple, time-efficient operations.

Roberto Marabotto, Global Account Director at Arts Alliance Media, added, “we’re very proud to be selected as the SSIFF’s trusted software partner for a ninth consecutive event. Working hand-in-hand with their operations team and Kelonik, we have established a tailored software structure that will ensure simple day-to-day management and seamless cinematic viewing.”
