‘How to’ Guide to the Festival

Due to COVID restrictions, our inaugural film festival takes place online. Please note that due to restrictions the films can only be viewed in the Republic of Ireland. The Q&As however can be viewed from the world over.

The following Q & As are here to guide you on how to have the best festival experience. The full programme can be viewed here.

How can I book tickets to the films?

All films are free to view but tickets are limited. Registration is necessary. Choose a film and click the RENT button. Type in your name and email address, choose a password and you are registered. Then the film is added to your library.

How can I watch films?

You can view the film any time from when it is scheduled in the programme. To access your library, go to https://sosfestival.curamdevicesengage.ie/ and login with your registration details. Click on your name and a drop-down tab appears with ‘library’ as an option. Your films are stored there.

The film stays in your library for 5 days from the date of streaming. Once you press play, you have 30 hours to watch the film as many times as you like. Note: Films can no longer be viewed after November 13th.
