What are the system requirements?

Can I Chromecast content?

Can I AirPlay to my AppleTV?

You can AirPlay from most browsers if you have Apple TV by selecting the AirPlay button in the bottom right-hand side of the player.

Why does video playback stall or not play smoothly?

We use adaptive bitrate streaming which means the streaming quality will automatically adjust based on your internet speed. If your internet connection is poor or inconsistent you may experience problems during playback. If you’re on wifi, try moving closer to your router.

Why do I see a black screen if I am watching content with AirPlay on my TV?

You likely have “Screen Mirroring” turned on in your device settings. Please turn off the screen mirroring setting and start AirPlay by selecting the AirPlay button in the bottom right-hand side of the player.

Why do I see a black screen after the pre-roll if I am casting to Chromecast?

Some Chromecast versions cannot support transitions from one video to another. If this happens, turn off casting and restart it once the film starts playing.

Can I watch on my Roku or Apple TV

Where do I get tickets?

How will I get my tickets?

After purchasing a ticket, you will receive a second email with the link to the content when the film you selected becomes available to view. If you buy your tickets at any point when the video is available for viewing, you will immediately receive the email that will allow you to watch the film.

When can I watch the films / attend the events?

The majority of virtual titles will then be available at 12:01 am on the day(s) indicated on the film page. Some film titles and events have a limited watch window and this will be indicated on the film page.

Why is a virtual screening sold out?

Virtual screenings have a capacity limit similar to the amount of tickets that would be available for in-theater screenings. The number of tickets we have available for purchase are negotiated with representatives from each film, as these Festival showings are often the premiere of their film or a very early showing of the film and are therefore limited before the film’s official release.

Will passholders be guaranteed access?

Due to film capacity limits, virtual films are screening on a first-come-first-served basis, with priority given to ticketholders. Passholders will need to show up to the virtual screening ahead of time to secure a spot.
