Sun-, er, Slamdance Slated app

Posted on: January 18th, 2011 by wmapother 1 Comment

As I’ve posted about before, Slated hosts online film guides for film festivals via its Festival Genius service, which offers easy searchability, customized, conflict-free schedules, integrated ticketing, and film ratings.

Slated offers a free iPhone app (here), which includes all the film festivals it hosts.  This app includes a festival’s entire line-up of films, events, etc., including up-to-the minute changes.  If you’ve every had to carry around a paper schedule, you’ll appreciate just how much sense this makes.

Certain festivals, however, also hire Slated to create a dedicated iPhone app just for their festival.  The most recent festival to do just that is this week’s Slamdance festival (held in Park City, Utah, at the same time and right alongside the Sundance festival).

Slamdance counts among its many alumni such filmmakers as Steven Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Ocean’s 11, 12, 13), Christopher Nolan (Inception), Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball, Quantum of Solace), and Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite).

You can download the free Slamdance/Slated iPhone app here.
