How should I watch the festival?

Once you have a festival pass and set up your Filmocracy account, please use a Chrome Browser on your desktop / laptop to navigate to our Festival Map. Please plan to set-up as you would for an “official” video call – check your mic and camera so you can participate fully! Use our Film Schedule to find out about screening times and Q&A sessions. 

I want to watch the film on my TV. How can I do this?

The best way to do this (and IM recommended way) is to use an HDMI cable that connects your laptop to your TV (you may need to buy an HDMI adapter cable if you have a MacBook with only USB-C ports). 

If you’re more adventurous and have a Smart TV, here are other options:

  • Use Airplay to stream from your Mac to an Apple TV.
  • Use Chromecast to cast from your laptop to TV.

Since you will be using your laptop to interact with attendees and film-makers in our Q&A lobby, we highly recommend using the HDMI cable for the least hassle.

The Festival Map is too big / too small! What do I do?

If you’ve zoomed in too much / or the map has gotten too small, follow these steps:
