VANCOUVER, B.C. – May 27, 2010 – Turner Broadcasting’s Turner Classic Movies (TCM) and TBS have contracted QuickMobile to develop mobile solutions for both the TCM CLASSIC FILM FESTIVAL and TBS PRESENTS A “VERY FUNNY” FESTIVAL: JUST FOR LAUGHS.

Attendees will be able to access the entire festival guide and schedule, read about special panels, search topics and “what’s on now”, consult a map of each festival and event and geolocate venues, and organize their own itinerary combined with their chosen festival events on their SmartPhone. Other major features of the mobile solutions include sorting and searching events, festival and screening details pages, and social networking interfaces with Facebook, Twitter, festival picture gallery and more!

The mobile solutions include an iPhone app and mobile website for Turner Classic Movies recently held in LA, and an iPhone and Android app and mobile website for Just For Laughs to be held in Chicago June 15th to 19th. Features include interactive schedules, show information, maps, Twitter and Facebook integration, and extends these festivals beyond traditional websites.

David Snell, EVP of QuickMobile stated, “We were happy to be invited, and to respond to, Turner’s RFP, and even happier to be chosen to be the exclusive developer of mobile solutions for these two world renowned festivals. These festivals are very different in nature and have tested our creativity in terms of differentiating these mobile solutions, yet keeping the brand and goals that TBS set out. We trust that we have met and exceeded their expectations”.
