TIMING OF SCREENING:
All film screenings have a start time. Once this start time occurs you will have 24 hours to open your screening. We have done this to increase access for those working shift work or from different time zones.
Once you start watching, you have 7 days to finish watching the program. We have done this to increase access to those who need to take a break from watching.
All screenings are a one-time view.
If it helps to remember it say: “ONE day to open and ONE week to watch for a ONE time view”
Please note there is a Meet the Filmmakers Creator Chat on zoom at 5:00 pm (EDT) on Saturday, June 12, 2021, with filmmakers from the HOLDING PLACE program who are able to attend. So you might want to see the whole program before the creator chat. However, it can also be interesting to go to the creator chat and then see the films.
