Although Film Fest Gent seems to be a one-off event to the outside world, it's a year-round effort to achieve this wonderful result: some 100 feature films and 30 short films from all over the world, with an international audience of more than 100,000 spectators. Every year, we provide the complete IT infrastructure and IT support.
All year long the year, the Film Fest team works behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly during the event. In the run-up to the festival, temporary locations are set up for various teams that are in charge of logistics. About 100 employees need access to Wi-Fi and telephone. We are their network manager.
Yaska takes care of an impeccable installation and provides a permanent presence at these temporary locations. Everything is checked repeatedly so that absolutely nothing can go wrong during the event. Just think of the dozens of people who are responsible for organising the catering, transport and accommodation of actors and directors, the daily schedule of these guests... . A network problem would result in communication issues between the Film Fest teams and their guests.
The temporary locations are interconnected with specific equipment to ensure that servers, printers and telephony remain accessible from all locations.
"As the organizer of Belgium's largest film festival, Film Fest Gent has been able to rely on the near flawless service & advice of the Yaska team for the past several years."
Yaska ensures flawless installation of all computers and networks, guarantees that networks remain accessible and provides the necessary IT support where necessary. If you want more information about this project, you can always contact Timothy.
