How do I watch a film?
To watch a film, you can: purchase an individual ticket, purchase a pass, or redeem an access code if you’ve been given one by the festival. If you make your purchase during the pre-order period, you’ll need to wait until the festival starts to watch your film(s). You will be able to use your ticket or pass to watch the film(s) for the duration of the festival. Once the festival starts, select the title you want to watch from the Festival home page. If you have a pass or a ticket for the title selected, you can click “Watch” to begin viewing. Make sure you’re logged into Seed&Spark with the e-mail that you used when making your purchase!
Where can I watch the film?
You can watch the film on any Internet-connected device like a computer, tablet, or phone (no downloads required!).
How do I watch a specific film in a shorts block?
When watching shorts blocks, the video player will always start with the first title in the shorts block, even if you click on a film further down the list. In order to navigate to the film you would like, you'll need to navigate there inside the video player. With the video player open, look for the list icon in the bottom right of the player:
When you click that, a list of the different films will pop up. You can scroll through them to find the film you wish to watch.
How do I redeem an access or discount code?
Codes can be redeemed during checkout. Make your purchase selection and enter your code in the "Coupon code" step on the checkout page. Please note that your code may be specific to individual tickets or passes only – in that case, your code will not work if you've selected a different product type.
I have a free access code. Do I still need to input my credit card information?
Nope! At checkout, enter your free access code in the "Coupon code" field and click "Apply." If the code provides free access, the credit card fields will disappear. Please note: If you opt to include a 10% donation to cover festival operational fees, you will need to input credit card information.
How can I purchase tickets for multiple films?
Tickets must be purchased individually. Your access to all of the titles you’ve purchased tickets for is tied to your Seed&Spark account (using the e-mail and password that you set during checkout), so make sure you’re logged in to watch! Alternatively, you can purchase a festival pass for access to all titles.
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. For panels, follow the instructions on your Eventbrite ticket confirmation.
