Festival Genius Lives
Wouldn't it be great if someone built an online program guide containing info about screenings at 200 international film festivals. If that site was interactive, it could gather moviegoer feedback on tens of thousands of feature films from an audience of millions of annual visitors. Just think about the marketing possibilities if a filmmaker had access to all that information and a core audience of people who registered on the site (providing email addresses etc.).
