Please take notice that some have had technical issues playing back the films on a Safari browser so we recommend using another browser.

FestHome TV offers no direct support for Chromecast. You can however mirror a film from your computer via a Chrome browser to your Chromecast. You can find the “Cast” button on the right side of your Chrome browser address bar.

How to watch the films?

You can access the films you’ve purchased once you’ve logged in to the FestHome TV service. You can check your ticket purchases when you click open your profile drop menu on the right upper corner. Choose ‘Purchases’, the fifth item from the top.

Alternatively once you’ve logged in, you can also go directly to watch your purchased film on its film page.

After the purchase of a single ticket or a festival pass, each film can be viewed once during the festival. Please note that if you stop the film after you’ve watched about 90 % of its running time, the service will consider the film watched and you won’t be able to return to it with the same ticket.

The festival and all viewing rights for the films ends on April 18 at 11:59 PM for all ticket types. You can finish the film you had already started before the end of the festival. Please note that you can’t restart the film after the end of the festival so do not pause the film.
