1. What is FestiCal?

FestiCal is the only film festival calendar. We've made it our job to provide the most convenient festival circuit experience possible. While we are a small operation, being small allows us to provide a more personal experience with our users. We gladly help curate and maintain festival pages for even festivals not registered with our site as we believe providing the experience is important.

If you are tired of the same old online festival browsing experience then FestiCal is for you. We have plenty of new, niche and exciting festivals here on FestiCal waiting to be discovered.


2. Is FestiCal a Submission Platform?

No. Currently, FestiCal has no plans to become a submission platform. If are you in need of a submission platform, please check out FilmFreeway.com or WithoutABox.com


3. Is FestiCal 'Free as in Beer'?

Absolutely. FestiCal has always been, and will always be, 100% free to use and enjoy! One day down the line it may just become 'free as in speech'.

FestiCal is free to use, and will remain free, but should you appreciate our work we accept donations in the form of Bitcoin.
Our donation address is 122vuBAHc7tcgysmEBB3kCousKFFiyGsw9


4. Where Does Your Information Come From?

The information on FestiCal originated from various sources. While we originally crawled the internet for as much information about as many film festivals as possible, we'd like the bulk of our information to be submitted by festival organizers and visitors like you as time progresses.


5. Will You Sell My Information?

Hell no. Any information we collect from you, which is very limited and only up to you (and opt-in, not opt-out), is used for basic site functions.


6. What About Ads? Do You Use Them?

At the moment we are using Google AdSense on certain pages but we are developing our own advertising platform to offer discreet, tasteful ads on FestiCal. Expect to see ads slowly transition over the next few months.

We know Google Ads are less than ideal (but better than a lot) so please feel free to use an ad-blocker if you find they are ruining your FestiCal experience.
