Is there a cost for the online films?

No! This is our gift to you during this difficult year, as a token of appreciation for our community that has supported us the past 17 years.

I’d like to make a donation; how can I do that?

Thank you! All donations are appreciated and go towards the operating expenses of our Festival, and supporting the educational initiatives of the Modern Greek Studies Foundation. Visit https://sfgff2020.eventive.org/donate to make a tax-deductible contribution.

Do I have to watch an online screening at a certain start time?

No. All virtual on-demand content will be accessible from October 3-10. When you “unlock” the film, you will see an indication of how long you have to start watching below the “watch now” button on the film page. After you’ve started watching, the indication will change to show you how much time is remaining in your watch window. We recommend you “unlock” the film at the time you plan to watch for maximum viewing time.

Can I stop and start while watching?

Yes. You can stop and start a screening during the week of the festival.

Can I vote for a film?

Yes, and we encourage you to do so! All films are eligible for the Astron Audience Awards for Best Feature Film and Best Short Film.
