I mentioned a few weeks ago that I’d been working on a film festival scheduling site, FestivalFanatic.com. Though it went live then, it really hasn’t been useful without any festivals configured.

As of this morning, though, it now has the Portland International Film Festival schedule in it, and nearly everything I wanted in the first release is working — the notable exception being automatic scheduling, which I hope to finish in a day or two.

It’s been hard to find time to work on Festival Fanatic, though, because I’ve been attending press screenings for the past week and a half (two a day), plus there’s been two Portland Center Stage events and Ignite Portland. Starting tomorrow, it gets worse: there are still press screenings during the day, and the regular festival screenings in the evening. I’m really glad my push for 1.0 is done!
