R2R’s All Access Pass gives access to the programs, from one device. Each pass allows all short film programs to be viewed as many times as you want. Short Film programs will be available starting midnight on March 28. As a pass holder you are welcome to watch whenever you’d like—day or night, weekday or weekend—through the end of the Festival (April 6).


Programs can be viewed on your web browser via Eventive, which can be cast to your TV using and on AppleTV or Roku. A comprehensive guide can be found at this link.

  • Once you purchased your pass, browse through our program on our A-Z Feature Films and A-Z Short Films pages and decide on what films or film programs you’d like to see.
