Film Independent Selects AudienceView

A champion of independent films, the organization also hosts more than 250 other screenings and events annually, including the year-round weekly LACMA Film Series.

The fully integrated AudienceView solution will replace many of Film Independent’s legacy software packages with a single, web-based platform that integrates memberships, ticketing, festival passes, packages, fundraising and more.

AudienceView was selected following a referral from a current film festival client and because of its proven, ongoing success with similar organizations.

“We are proud to welcome Film Independent to our growing family of North American film and festival organizations,” said Maureen Andersen, Vice President of Arts and Entertainment for AudienceView. “Our single, integrated solution is providing Film Independent and its high-profile events with the modern technology needed to exceed both customer expectations and business requirements.
