  1. Good luck with this innovative festival format, GFF! The little festival that could, even during a pandemic!

  2. This is always an amazing festival, and I look forward to it each year. Alas, I am in the US working.
    Therefore, can you tell me if any of it will be geo-blocked to the States?
    All best wishes for a terrific festival 2021.

  3. I want to buy a pass but will be in Churchill for theses dates. Can I access the films through my phone ?

    • Hi Maureen!

      Our on-demand, Netflix-styled, streaming platform GFF On Demand should be available on mobile and tablet as well! If you have a TV that is capable of “screen sharing” or “mirroring” we would even recommend doing that, so you can share whatever is on your phone or tablet screen to the bigger TV screen for a much more enjoyable viewing experience. There are also decently affordable projectors that can connect to Smartphones and project the image as well, in case you’re looking for a more “movie in the backyard” type of approach.
