Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I view the full schedule?

I bought a ticket but I can't unlock the screening. What's the deal?

Make sure you are using the same email and password you used to buy the ticket. If you create a different password or are using a different email the site doesn't know you have tickets. Check yourself before you Shrek yourself.

What's this Skittish.com thing? I'm an old person. Should I be an animal?

Everyone can be an animal for an hour. Join the gang inside our TAAFI Pre-Award Animal Mixer.

What is Discord and why do people talk about it?

Discord is like a big chatroom where TAAFI Film Festival attendees can message each other, chat on various topics, and have video chats with each other. It's great. We'll be hosting our popular Games Night and Drink & Draw's in there.

What is Spatial Chat? And what is this Virtual Red Carpet nonsense?

Spatial Chat is like a zoom call, but your webcam is a bubble, and you can move yourself around on the screen. We've animated 4 different backgrounds you can move around in, and the closer you are to someone the more you can hear them.

Where do I watch the films? And do I have to buy a pass or a ticket?

You watch the films on the Eventive Site. You can watch the features or shorts with a pass or a ticket.

Can I attend from anywhere in the world?


What’s the time zone for this event?

The event will be held in the Eastern Standard time zone (EDT).

Can I watch screenings after?

YES. But there's a catch. You have to reserve a ticket, or unlock the screening. Then you have one week (7 days) to watch it. Features are not the same. Paw Patrol however is a real-time broadcast one shot.
