Frequently asked questions

How do I watch a film?
To watch the films, register for a free festival pass. If you have registered during the pre-order period, you’ll need to wait until the festival starts to watch your films. Once the festival starts, select the title you want to watch from the Festival home page. If you have a pass for the title selected, you'll be able to click “Watch” to begin viewing. Make sure you’re logged into Seed&Spark with the e-mail that you used when registering!
Where can I watch the films?
You can watch the films on any Internet-connected device like a computer, tablet, or phone (no downloads required!). You can also cast it to a TV. To watch on a TV, click play from the film page. Once the film player is open, hover your mouse over the bottom part of the frame to show icons that enable Screen Shot 2020-05-26 at 11.53.33 AM.png (Chromecast) or Screen Shot 2020-05-26 at 11.53.27 AM.png(Airplay). As long as you have a Chromecast, Apple TV, or a Smart TV that supports either option, the icons should show up and the film should play on your TV.
How do I join a virtual event?
You’ll find all available events listed in the Virtual events tab on the Festival home page. Each event will have its own instructions for RSVP or purchasing tickets listed in the description.
