I watch digital stuff via playstation which has amazon, netflix, iplayer etc. I wouldnt have a clue wether this would be an option so will have to skip it. Crying....
Yeah, think your only option there would be if the Eventive website plays nice with the PS browser.

Re: HOW TO WATCH

Sorry cm- I meant changing the display resolution options on your laptop so it outputs correctly on your tv... not resorting to watching on your laptop (assuming this is what you thought I meant! :) )

Re: HOW TO WATCH

It doesn’t help that Apple has serious branding problems with their TV products; there’s the TV box (Apple TV), the app (Apple TV) and the streaming service (Apple TV+) :s You have the Apple TV app on your tv and, as you correctly surmised, cannot watch via that. Instead you’d need to install the Ev...

Re: HOW TO WATCH

I’m in the same situation. The Eventive site itself doesn’t seem to mention Firestick app support, only Apple TV, Roku and Android TV (https://eventive.org/virtual). Whilst it looks like you can sideload Android TV apps onto a Firestick, I don’t imagine this is what Eventive had in mind. Hopefully, ...

Re: Geo-locked Frightfest

The website for Eventive (who it seems are providing the streaming service for the festival) claims “Advanced VPN and proxy blocking”. Also a quick check on another film festival using them suggests disabling your VPN in its troubleshooting section so it sounds like using a VPN could be... problemat...

Re: FrightFest August

Obviously I don't have clue one about the cost of putting on FF or its turnover so I apologise if this is a dumb question but... does a 50% drop in ticket sales for the October event still make this a worthwhile (i.e. profitable) endeavour? (You don't have a track record of being the kind of folks t...

Re: Frightfest Halloween date

Wow- yeah, you’re right. I just always remembered it as being before :s

Just wish it didn’t clash with the fireworks I guess :(

Frightfest Halloween date

Not sure if this has always been the case but, for as long as I've been going to the FF Halloween event, it has been held *before* Halloween. Just seems a bit weird to hold it afterwards for this year. Also, there's the added frustration that we've all had to decide between this or fireworks display...

Re: 2019 Ticket info.

I won’t reiterate what everyone else has said. Frankly, I wouldn’t blame Ian if he steered clear of this thread due to the sheer ire the booking process has drawn this year. Last year was fine for me (ticket booked by 12:03), the year before that scarily fast (seeing those dots go red in real-time) ...

Re: Best 5 of the festival

Either I was the only person here to see it, or I completely misjudged it but I’m amazed nobody else is ranking The Laplace’s Demon. Such a smart premise, brilliantly constructed with clockwork precision and looks straight out of the 30s or 40s. It had a real Fermat’s Room or (retro) Cube feel to i...

Re: BRING BACK THE Q & As

I also disagree with the whole ‘if you have a question you can ask the filmmaker in the foyer’ thing. I often don’t have a question (or have the nerve to ask) but always love to hear other peoples’ questions as they’ve often spotted something I didn’t and bring out extra interesting nuggets about th...
