There will be no replays, nor will there be the possibility of delayed viewing. Access will be free, and registration will not be necessary, nor will there be geolocation restrictions. Your work will receive maximum protection against abuse (from downloading or similar) and immediately after the Festival program is over will no longer be available to the public. By registering for Festival 2021, you give permission for your work to be shown online via the LIVE video stream if necessary.
