How do I add Captions whilst watching?

On the player there is a control icon at the top right, click this and you can choose the resolution to watch back in.
How long will I have to watch the films?
The films will be released in batches.
Can I get a refund on my Festival Pass?
All Festival Pass sales are non-refundable once the event starts.
How do I attend the Live Q&As?
There will be a link available via the UKFRF page. We will also send out emails to Festival Pass holders.
Can I watch all the films straight away?
No. We wanted to create a "festival" experience and not just a bunch of films dumped on in one go. Antipcation is good for the soul. The films are released in batches each day. We will also allow people to watch films from previous days (e.g. you can still watch Friday's films on Saturday), and ALL films will be available until the end of Monday 16th.
