HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our online festival, which will be hosted by Festival Scope, will be a limited-time event for which viewers will be able to purchase tickets/access codes to screen programs of the selected films. Access will be limited to viewers in the United States and films will only be screened within curated programs rather than individually. Viewers will receive a unique link to each program purchased for a one-time viewing.
Festival Scope is compatible with the latest versions of Internet browsers (Firefox 43 and+, Internet Explorer 11 and+, Chrome 48 and+, Safari 10 and+), though Chrome is best recommended, and is supported on both iOS and Android devices.
