TOfilmfest was specifically built on free software, back in 2005.
In fact, it was free advice that led to the website's re-design, and to various venues and sponsors who helped promote it.
This year, with increasing traffic costs, some small advertisements were added – to keep TOfilmfest free.
So, when the film festival announced it's mobile app would only be available for BlackBerry (a major sponsor), we wished for a free solution for all users of mobile devices.
Information wants to be free, so our database is available to other developers for collaboration on new projects.
Today, a new project is ready for testing!
TOfilmfest.ca/TIFFwidgetSince this project is considered an alpha version, it's announcement is being limited to this blog. Please do not spread the word just yet! It's being made available for those participating in the Advance Order process on Monday, August 30th.
“a web-based app, optimized for iPhone – but should work with Android”
A disclaimer from the developer:
IMPORTANT: Screening times listed are NOT official. There should be a high degree of accuracy, but the schedule can change at any time and this page is NOT maintained in real time. Use this form ONLY as a preliminary planning tool and be SURE to double-check a chosen movie’s screening times via the TIFF button.Unfortunately short films are not included in the data.
Any feedback is welcome and appreciated!
We look forward to future versions of TIFFwidget to bring all the functionality of TOfilmfest to all mobile devices! :-)
Pick the best of the fest!
