  • Tribeca At Home FAQ
    • What is a “Watch Window”?
      • A watch window is how long you have to watch a film once you press ‘PLAY’.
    • How long are watch windows?
      • Most films have a 48 hour watch window. Some films in the festival are scheduled at specific times with shorter watch windows. Be sure to check each film’s dedicated page in the film guide for details.
    • Can I pause or rewind during the watch window?
      • Yes, you have complete access to the entire program during your watch window.
    • When can I watch movies?
      • Many films are available to watch from June 9 - June 23, 2021.
      • Films with an in-person premier, will be available to watch on the At Home platform the evening following their live screening - at 6:00 pm EST and remain available to watch through the 23rd of June.
      • Films screening on the At Home platform exclusively have scheduled premiere times and remain available to watch through June 23rd
      • Note that while films are available to watch through June 23rd, ticket sales are cut-off at midnight on June 20th (the last day of the festival). Viewers will then have 72hrs to complete their viewing experience.
      • Please note that a small number of films will have specific At Home premiere dates with shorter watch windows; these details will be listed on each film’s dedicated page in the film guide.
    • How many times can I watch a film with my At Home Festival Pass?
      • Passholders may watch films ONE (1) time each. If a film has a watch window of 72 hours, and the PLAY button has been pressed (i.e. the film watch window has begun), 72 hours later the film’s availability will expire - regardless of whether or not the film has been watched in full. Passholders will not be able to start the film again once the watch window has expired.
    • Can I watch the films from anywhere in the USA?
      • Yes, you can access and watch At Home from all 50 states within the USA only. At Home will not be available outside the USA.
    • Can I watch films on multiple devices throughout my home?
      • You may have up to two devices (i.e. your laptop and your smart tv) logged into your account at a time under the same IP address (i.e. the same household/location). Concurrent stream restriction means you are only able to actively stream content on a single device at a time.
    • What if I move from one location to another during the festival?
      • Single-IP restriction means that you can only watch content from a single IP address at a given time. If you move locations but are using the same device, you will have no issue watching films. If you move locations and are watching on a new device, you will need to deactivate the old device before the system will allow you to login on the new device. User activity will be tracked and monitored and accounts will be deactivated if abuse is found (you may not share your account with friends or family who do not reside in the same location as you).
