Il Cinema Ritrovato '22 Spreadsheet Scheduler
After the success of our first festival scheduler and all the kind words we received, we've created a version for Il Cinema Ritrovato 2022 (36th edition) - the full programme in a spreadsheet with a scheduling tool! Film festivals are (the best kind of) intense; our spreadsheet will calculate whether you can make it to the next screening in time and help you spot all those potential clashes!
To setup your scheduler:
Click ‘File’ and ‘Make a Copy’
To add a film to ‘My Schedule: ’Tick/check the ‘Add’ box ✅ (in column K) and the film will automatically appear.
If you find you have a clash on ‘My Schedule’, or have changed your mind, check the ‘Leftovers’ ✅ box and it will go to the ‘Leftovers’ sheet. You can also delete the entire row if you need to.
Don't change the name of the tabs or add films in very quick succession
The very first time you add a film, the script may take a few seconds to work
Tabs in the sheet:
My Schedule - contains optional columns for:
Ticket # - based on the previous editions with pre-booking, we strongly recommend you make a note of your ticket numbers!
Live music screenings
On film screenings
Leftovers (the ones that got away)
Script (not to be edited)
Why spreadsheets when there's a programme? Spreadsheets allow for visually clear and filterable data and can be duplicated easily so the user can keep or edit their own version - this is useful to most people, but especially those that use screen readers, have visual processing disorders or ADHD.
If you have any questions or would like a similar scheduler for your events, email email@example.com or tweet at @rep_cinema
With thanks to Ehsan Khoshbakht and the entire Il Cinema Ritrovato team for keeping the festival going throughout the pandemic - and with such a varied and wondrous lineup.
See you in Bologna!
