Premier Student Film Fest Uses Web to Boost Attendees

FALLS CHURCH, VA - Today, Viget Labs launched a new web site for the Angelus Student Film Festival (www.angelus.org), the premier film festival showcasing emerging filmmakers -- sponsored by Family Theater Productions (www.familytheater.org). Viget Labs has a long-standing relationship with the film festival and its parent organization, having developed both organizations' web sites since 2002.

Each year, Viget Labs redesigns the Angelus site coincident with the film festival's annual call for submissions. Last year, in addition to the site redesign effort, Viget Labs was instrumental in implementing email marketing to satisfy the festival's need to solicit and confirm attendees at the awards ceremony in October. The email marketing campaign was a huge success and changed the way in which Angelus does business in a number of ways. They now plan to use email marketing as an outreach mechanism to film festival alumni throughout the year and as a means for conducting other initiatives.
