-How do I get my free ticket for the Shift Your World Film Festival?
You can get your free pass at the Shift Your World Film Festival website.
The free general admission ticket includes streaming access to the full program of feature films, special event presentations, a collection of shorts, and panels & conversations. Much like an in-person film festival, content is only available at the scheduled time and there are no free replays of the festival content.
For extended access to the films, exclusive perks, and an immersive virtual experience, upgrade to a Shift Your World Film Festival VIP pass.
-What do I get with my paid Shift Your World Film Festival pass?
With your paid Shift Your World Film Festival pass, you will get two weeks extended access (May 9-23, 2021) to the Shift Your World Film Festival films (excluding special events), a special invitation to join an exclusive screening of End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock on May 15 (attendance limited to the first 500 RSVPs), an immersive virtual experience and “welcome receptions” during the Film Festival (May 6-9), indefinite access to 2 Shift Network courses, the official 2021 Shift Your World Film Festival program, and membership into our “Shift Your World Insider’s Club”. (Note that because of contractual, distribution & licensing agreements, some films will be omitted from the recordings and the extended viewing window is only from May 9-23.)
The immersive virtual lounges and “weekend receptions” will be hosted by our platform partner OHYAY. For optimal experience, use a Chrome browser and activate your camera and microphone.
