SECOND STEP

Are you used to screening films and shows live through your TV? If not, here are some tips on your options.

Option 1:

 If you have a smart TV or Apple TV check to see if it has Vimeo. This is the platform that will allow you to watch our Festival films online. You can also use the Vimeo App on your phone or iPad, and then stream it wirelessly to the smart tv/apple tv/chromecast via bluetooth (more info here).

Option 2: 

Connect your computer to your TV. Most newer TVs have an HDMI socket in the back. Most computers either have an HMDI output socket, or you can buy an adapter plug. Then you can load Vimeo on your computer and play the shows through the better quality image and sound of the TV.

First you need to connect your computer to your TV with an HDMI cable, then select the right HDMI input with your TV remote, and then load the page on your computer and start viewing.

NOTE: for the sound to come through the TV you sometimes need to connect your computer before loading the Vimeo page.

Option 3: 

Watch the Festival on your computer. If you are alone, use earphones to enhance the experience. If you are two or more people, see if you can connect your computer to a Bluetooth or regular wired speaker.
