The Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival is the world’s largest international festival dedicated to short films. Held annually in Clermont-Ferrand, France, the festival boasts more than 160,000 attendees and 3,500 professionals, making it the second-largest film festival in France after Cannes.
With a host of activities surrounding the annual event, the lean staff at Clermont-Ferrand has had to juggle a lot. As their list of responsibilities continued to grow, they found that their custom-built proprietary content management system (CMS)—which they used to build their original website—was beginning to slow them down.
In an effort to find an easier, more agile solution, festival staff began building sites with WordPress, and they decided to find a partner with deep WordPress expertise who could help them get even more out of the platform.
