Creating your festival experience

Attending a festival online is not so unusual anymore, and many of us have worked out our preferred way of participating remotely. Here are some suggestions and ideas to consider:

  • A festival at home
    We recommend setting aside time as deliberately as you would if you were travelling to a physical venue. How would you like to attend? Could you mark the beginning and end of your festival time – arriving and leaving, as it were?
  • Enjoy it!
    Make the most of attending in your private space. Move along to a film; listen to a discussion while lying down with your eyes closed; watch films in your own time, pause when you feel like it – play with the format to suit yourself!
  • Choose your screen
    Many of us watch on the same device we use for work. How can you change the script – e.g. moving to a different location, or changing something about the space you are in?
  • Feast your eyes
    Find lighting conditions that work well for you; consider plugging your device into your TV screen.
  • Feed your ears
    The sound design of films is often an important element, and hearing it as it was intended will enhance your experience – experiment with your speaker or headsets.
  • Captions
    We have asked filmmakers to provide captions if sound or dialogue is an important part of their film. You should be able to toggle these on or off.
  • Join with others
    Perhaps you want to organise a watch party with others also attending online. Join us for the social space on Sunday afternoon to chat with other online attendees. Send us your questions for the Keynote and Saturday night Q&A.
