"Filmaster as an open service
Implemented in Django (a Python framework) and using a PostgreSQL database engine, Filmaster was made possible by using strictly free software. The decision to open source the code of the service itself came a few months after the development started. It became clear to the project founders, Borys Musielak and Adam Zielinski, that making Filmaster fully free software will enable the project to grow much faster and gain a wider range of features compared to proprietary websites offering similar recommendations functionality like Jinni.com, Criticker.com or ClerkDogs, not to mention a popular movie social network Flixter.com."
