Welcome to Pixnpanz

The ultimate resource for picking the right films to see at a film festival

Like you, we love film festivals and the thrill of discovering new talent and memorable films. For us, film festivals are the lifeblood of the art form: pushing boundaries, experimenting with new storytelling methods, exposing us to new ideas and new cultures, and of course introducing fresh talent alongside familiar faces.

But for some of the larger festivals, the choices can seem overwhelming. For example, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival screened over 200 films during the 10 days of the 2016 festival, with many scheduling conflicts and last minute changes. Only the most intrepid time traveller could have made every showing. Often high expectations are dashed and we feel like our time has been wasted.

So how can we make our time spent more rewarding?
