Starting this week, is the most famous film festival of them all The Cannes Film Festival that actually consists of four different events rolled into one. Festival de Cannes: Selection Officielle is the most well-known where feature films compete for the Palme d’Or, moody actors suffers through endless press conferences and starlets appear naked on the beach.
Less well known are the two other competitions; Cinefondation which selects films from film schools all around the world, and Cannes Court Métrage which is the short film competition.
The fourth event is the gigantic Marché du Film, the Film Market, where we at Dramatify will meet producers and introduce our online mobile production tool. We will only be there for three of the ten festivals, joining up on Friday 17th and leaving late on Sunday 19th. Please contact me, Annika Lidne, through mail or twitter, if you want to set up a meeting!

A quick video report from the second day of MIPTV in Cannes. A more thorough explaination of the tern transmedia and how both broadcasters and brands must measure and optimize their content for audiences who surprisingly might not be the ones they expected – when social media analytics is brought into the game.
This week Dramatify will be at one of the biggest TV industry events in the world, the MIPTV market in Cannes. Our goal is to meet new contacts, hopefully some fresh international clients and check out the latest industry trends. We will try blogging at least a daily report on industry trends and interesting talks.
Dramatify is at Leweb this year as part of the Swedish Startup Collective. The entire day have been crazy with both booked meetings and chance meetings. I didn’t really count on bumping in to an Isreali guy who happened to own a couple of TV networks – but that is what happens at Leweb.
Before lunch, Geraldine Lemeur, organiser of Leweb, stopped by our booth and had a chat.
Wow! When we sent in our application to the Wistrand Startup Star competition, we hadn’t expected to win!
The competition was interesting because it allowed us to validate Dramatify’s business idea with people not in our target industry, but rather investors and startup experts. That the business idea is on target with our target industry is of course the most important, but we conduct regular interviews with our target group to make sure we develop the right features.
The prize of Wistrand Startup Star is mainly a lot of free legal advice – a great thing for any startup!
