Show Notes

Welcome to BuiltOnAir, a podcast and video series about all things Airtable. Each week, we talk with someone active in the Airtable community to discuss their experiences and showcase an interesting way they’ve used Airtable in their work.

Jon Gann is an Events & Organizational Strategist from Washington, DC. Jon is probably best known for his contributions in the film festival world, and he’s done a lot to catalyze the sharing of institutional knowledge in what can be a fairly opaque industry.

After attending many fests as a filmmaker himself, Jon started the DC SHORTS film festival and is a founding Board Member of the Film Festival Alliance, the first professional organization for film festivals.

Jon has since turned to consulting to help film festivals and other organizations improve almost any facet of their event planning and process. Since finding Airtable, he uses it often as tool to help improve data organization and sharing amongst event teams.

He gives us a super-potent demo of a version of his Airtable base name “Fest Runner”, which does an elegant job of capturing the thousands of data points needed to plan and execute a film festival – from films submissions, to scheduling, to filmmaker airport pickups, and beyond.
