What does a Festival Pass give me access to? November Festival Pass gives access to all Native Spirit Digital Festival films listed on Elevent (subject to film availability) during November.
Where do I watch Panel Discussions and Q&As? these maybe included with the films as an add-on. We will upload the recorded files where available, and add to relevant film listing on Elevent. You can also find Q&As at Native Spirit Festival 2021 YouTube (pls subscribe/like).
Please note, due to filmmaker requirements, some films will only be available within a limited time frame, to specified regions/territories. (refer each films description, first line of Synopsis eg (Worldwide view, now-20 Nov)
Why are some films available longer than others? Availability is determined by filmmakers and distribution ie 24hr, 72hr, or longer
Please check carefully the Elevent listing (check film description/synopsis) for each film prior to purchasing your ticket and arranging your viewing of the film.
Why are some films only available in certain territories?
Certain films are geoblocked (only available to view in the UK and/or certain other territories).
This is in order to respect the filmmaker’s distribution wishes, and to maximise the film’s prospects for future distribution and screenings in the physical world.
Please ensure that you have checked the Elevent listing for each film prior to purchasing your pass/ticket, especially if you are currently residing outside of the UK.
What languages are the films available to view in?
Films that are not in English will be available to view as default with English subtitles (as per submission requirements of the festival).
Due to the diversity of Indigenous languages that feature in our Programme, we unfortunately cannot provide subtitles in languages other than English, except in a few instances where we have been provided with subtitles by the filmmakers (mostly for Spanish speakers). Please check each film for details.
