540 has worked with the Greenwich International Film Festival since 2017, providing not only a new web experience but ongoing monthly support. The website uses visual components throughout the website in the form of high-res imagery and video content. Users are guided through the site to easily view scheduled, film listings and ticket purchases.
In 2020 the Festival went virtual and we at 540 were challenged with presenting 50+ independent film pages ready for real-time playback all while securing these pages for the 1000+ users that were viewing the website over 3 days. Not only did we build the technology but we worked with the hosting provider to provide 24/7 real-time monitoring and monitored a support chat directly integrated into the website.
The mission of the Greenwich International Film Festival is to provide filmmakers with an effective platform to showcase their work with the goal of finding financing opportunities for future projects. Additionally, GIFF harnesses the power of film to serve the greater good by highlighting important issues that relate to basic human rights, education, the environment and health care.
