DONOR/BACKER Streaming Tix FAQ
The executive summary for donors/backers is: All of you are eligible for a discounted ticket purchase. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim the discount code.
For free tickets, you if you have "free screening tickets" perk in your backer/donor level, you can use it for this instead of a two (2) theatrical tickets. If you have already used up your free screening tickets or don't have that perk (Bronze and Silver donors), you can trade in your digital media perk for a free screening ticket. Contact us at email@example.com to arrange that.
Here is the full details on how it works. We've made a handy flow-chart to you can see which options apply for your donor/backer level (PDF HERE)

WHY IS THIS NOT JUST A FREE EVENT FOR ALL (OR FOR ALL DONORS)? In order to stream the movie with DRM encryption (used by Netflix, Apple TV, Disney) that both we and the film's distributor requires, we are using a platform (Eventive) that provide this. It is not free and in fact costs $3 per stream ticket sales will help cover those of you who elect free tickets.
WILL I BE ABLE TO WATCH MY COPY AFTER THE SCREENING WINDOW? No, just like renting a movie online, once the window expires, the stream will be gone. You may watch it as many times as possible during the window though. If you want a permanent copy, you will have to wait for the perks to be shipped (see here for more on that)
WILL THERE BE MORE LIVE STREAMING EVENTS? We don't know. It depends entirely on COVID-19's impact on theaters showing the film. Once the film can be shown reasonably normally in theaters, we can longer stream the film. So it's possible there might be another event or two but none are planned at this time.
CAN I SHARE MY TICKET WITH OTHERS? No, the ticket allows only one stream per email on one device (Computer, Tablet, TV via Roku or Apple TV)
