What does it mean GSFF MOVES VIRTUAL?

This means ‘on with the show’. We will be streaming the film festival live in real-time. Ticket holders will receive a special link and code to access the film festival during the already scheduled days and times to see your desired films. This will be just like attending the film festival except it will be from the comforts of your own home.

This is not YouTube or Vimeo and is not prone to pirating. This is the GSFF private servers. This is not a PUBLIC link; it remains for ticket holders only.

Is the virtual GSFF public?

No absolutely not! It is NOT PUBLIC. We would not do that. It is not YouTube or Vimeo or VOD.
