Credit

A Credit represents the functional relationship between an organization or a person with a film, for example a production company or a director.

Event

An Event represents a festival edition (or a one-off event, such as an On Tour program). In general, all films, programs, viewings, accreditations, forms, lists and mail jobs are related to a specific Event.

Film

A film is a unique title, produced in a certain year, created by one or more directors and producers.

Films can be easily confused with film copies, for example: a DCP is not a film, it’s a film copy.

Film copy

A film copy is either a physical or digital carrier that holds the audiovisual data of a film. Film copies of the same film may vary in quality (resolution, sound format), language (subtitles, dialogue) as well as purpose (screener, master, archive copy).

Label set

A label set is a collection of labels that can be assigned to a property. For example, labels in the the label set ‘Countries’ can be assigned to the property ‘Production country’ of a film. A label set can be organized using label categories. For example, the label set ‘Countries’ is divided in two categories: ‘Common countries’ and ‘Less-common countries’.

List

A list is a collection of items of any type (such as films, contacts, organizations, reviews, viewings, and so on) that you can share with others or use privately. A list can be either dynamic (based on filters) or static (hand-picked items). For more information, see Working with Lists.

Mailroom

Mailroom is a Filmchief module that enables you to send personalized e-mails to your contacts or guests. For more information, see Sending personalized mass emails using Filmchief Mailroom.

Order

An order is a collection of products, assigned to a specific person, that can be paid for. An order is either created by the festival (for example, when sending a payment request to a guest) or by the customer (using a shopping cart).

Price level

A price level is a modified (usually reduced) price of a product.

Product

A product represents something that can be sold using the Filmchief Shop and/or Filmchief Ticketing modules. A product has name, a description and a base price.

Role

Filmchief users have one or more roles, that reflect their job at the festival. Roles define the way Filmchief presents relevant information. Each role has a specific set of permissions, that apply to all users who have that role.

Screening room

Screening rooms are customizable video libraries that can be made accessible to a specific group of people. For more information, see the Screening rooms documentation.

Shift

A shift defines a task that must be fulfilled by a specific person during a certain period of time, usually at a specific location. A shift can optionally be linked to a viewing. For more information, see the Shift planner documentation.

Time frame

A time frame is a period of time in which something occurs or is planned to take place. For example, volunteers can indicate their availability to work during a specific time frame. For more information, see the Shift planner documentation.

User account

A user account is owned by a person who has access to Filmchief (internal) or the Filmchief Portal (external). A user account can also simply represent a person, without providing access to Filmchief at all (inactive or sleeping account).

Before an account can be used, it must be activated by validating the e-mail address registered to the account. Once activated, the account is protected with a password of at least six characters, chosen by the person who owns the account.
