It’s a shame there’s no direct FireTV or console support, there are definitely a couple of films I would have happily bought tickets for. Sadly our holidays reset with furlough, and it’s too early to book time off, so the one I was most interested in (There’s No Such Thing As Vampires) I would just miss the start. I have something there’s a chance I can’t get out of on the Saturday night too, so the other one I really wanted to see (Blind) I could potentially have missed as well. I saw another festival taking a more preferable (to me) approach, by providing a 24-48 hour window to catch films after they start, but sadly they appear to be using the same platform.
Also worried about October. I would love to go, but still don’t feel comfortable booking my hotel with how things are. The amount of cases seem on the rise again since things have re-opened. I wonder if they will entertain an alternate digital festival alongside the actual one. And if their platform will have FireTV support by then.
Not trying to be negative here, I respect the best is being made of a bad situation. I actually think the pass price is great value too. I’m just kinda sad, it’s become a highlight of my year. On the bright side, I may finally venture up the Glasgow one next year for the first time, despite it being far closer to me.
