From October 3 to 10, Haifa Film Festival Festival on line
How does it work?
This year, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the festival will take place as a virtual event only. The festive experience will be streamed from the Carmel to every
cinephile's private screen in Israel.
You could watch the films on your computer, your television, even on your cellphone screen.
Ticket sales will start at the morning of the 27.9
Tickets will be available to purchase beginning on the designated on-sale day for each film, and can be bought until the screening hour of that film.
The sale is online only. the "seats" are limited.
Tickets can be purchased by clicking on the button Buy Tickets on the film page, on the internet Festival Schedule site, and on Last Chance To Buy web page.
You may choose to purchase a package of tickets at a reduced price, and even a Festival Pass that gives you a full access to all of the films.
Just like the past festivals, each film has its own scheduled time and virtual venue. The number of screening is limited, and so is the number of participants.
You could have a bigger flexibility when it comes to the exact time of streaming.
The films will be available for streaming for 24 hours starting from its designated screening time.
You could watch the films on your computer, your television, your cellphone screen and tablets (Android and Apple - in the latest version). We recommend
using an up-to-date Chrome browser on your computer for the best streaming experience. * Explorer browser is not supported You could also connect your
computer with your TV screen using a suitable cable (a HDMI one, for instance); if you have a smart TV, you could use a streamer – Chromecast, for example.
