  • No 2 screenings will have the same meeting.

I want to watch Vimeo on my TV. How can I do this?

There are a few ways of doing this. If your TV has an HDMI input then connect your laptop to the TV using an HDMI cable (you may need to buy an adapter for newer Macs) and login to Vimeo and play the film.

Chromecast: Follow the steps below to Chromecast Vimeo to your Apple TV. https://vimeo.com/blog/post/chromecast-vimeo-for-ios-video-viewing-magic/

Otherwise, if you have Roku, Fire Stick or other smart TV devices:

  • Create a Vimeo account.

  • Download the Vimeo app for Roku or Firestick and after download, ensure you log-in to the app.

  • On your laptop, sign-in to Vimeo, go to the Vimeo video link and add it to your "watch later".

  • On the TV app, go to your "watch later" videos and play from there.

 

Will we have English subtitles?

Yes all videos will have embedded English subtitles, so you don't need to worry about messing around with any subtitles controls.

I can't watch the films at the times specified in the schedule. Can I start watching later? 

We try and bring you exclusive content and therefore, we only have access to those films at the times specified. Please try and start on time so you don't miss out, we have allowed for a 5 minute delay between end credits and the Q&A start time so you have the flexibility to take a break.
