Interactive screenings

If you opt for an interactive screening, your film package will include a video introduction by Seamus, a journalist from the 99 team

Seamus | 99.media

Seamus explains the ‘mechanics’ of interactive screenings: between each film, audience members have 30 seconds to give feedback via their mobile. At the end, the audience votes for their favourite.


→ If you have network connectivity issues, a self-print paper version is available to hand out at the start.

Before your screening you will receive:

  • your chosen film package subtitled in English (MP4 or DCP)
