Site YoungCuts.com represents an informational resource for competitors, critics and spectators of the yearly movie festival of young stage directors, which takes place every October in Canada. The site represents a means of communication of this event participants and an informational system for the movie critics work. Every competitor has a possibility to download a short film (up to 10 Mb), which further will be accessible for general viewing and will also be assessed by the jury members.
From technical point of view the site is composed on finished CMS Drupal with the switched on support of forum file downloading system, voting, mailing, e-Commerce, comments system, obscene words filter, banner advertisements. The site supports flexible control of content and functionality access levels through role and right system. Administrator area allows configuring the functionality and site content in on line mode.
Commercial success is expected owing to the banner advertisement, films and festival attributive e-Shop, and due to the organization of fee subscription for the privileged movie critic role.
Speaking about the competitors – the site will be interesting for them due to the possibility to increase the number of spectators, who get familiar with their work, and due to the chance to get the messages from critics and a place for formal and informal communication on every topic of the festival.
