Virtual Cinema Step-by-step

STEP ONE:  BUY YOUR TICKETS AND PASSES

  • GO TO MONTCLAIRFILM.ORG to purchase films, events and passes.
  • MEMBERS:  you must log in to your member portal account to get early access to tickets and to get your discounts.  
  • If you’re purchasing a pass, you’ll choose the specific films and events you want to watch later on in STEP THREE.
  • Please check the details of each film as some have specific location and date/time restrictions.
  • After you purchase your tickets or passes, you’ll receive an email confirmation of your order.  That email will have important information so please read it.

STEP TWO: ACTIVATE YOUR EVENTIVE ACCOUNT

  • Your Eventive Account is where you will find and access all of your virtual content for the festival.
  • If this is your FIRST virtual ticket purchase with us, you will receive an email from MFF Virtual Cinema inviting you to activate your Eventive account.   Add MFF Virtual Cinema to your contacts to avoid having these emails go to spam. These emails may take a few minutes so don’t panic but please email boxoffice@montclairfilm.org if you don’t receive them and please check your spam and junk folders.
  • Your Eventive activate must be activated with the same email address you used to purchase your tickets.
  • If your Eventive Account is already set up, you will not receive this email.  Just be sure you purchase your tickets using the same email as your Eventive Account so they sync up.
  • You will receive an email from MFF Virtual Cinema for each film or program you purchase with a link to WATCH NOW, so keep those emails handy.  Note: If you purchased an individual ticket to Stephen Colbert’s Lost Pilot Project, you will NOT receive an email from MFF Virtual Cinema – you will receive a separate email the evening of the event with a link to watch the program.

STEP THREE:  FIND AND WATCH YOUR PROGRAMS

INDIVIDUAL TICKET BUYERS:

  • Once you have activated your Eventive account, the programs you’ve purchased will be found in your Eventive Content Library which you can access by going to: watch.eventive.org/me and clicking on the gray circle on the top right corner of the screen.
  • Or, you can find your MFF Virtual Cinema order confirmation email and click on the link to access it there.
  • When you’re ready to watch, click the WATCH NOW button in the middle of your screen and enjoy!
  • You will have 24 hours once you hit play to finish viewing the film.

PASS BUYERS:

  • Log in to your Eventive Account at watch.eventive.org/montclairff and browse the film guide there.
  • Select films and events by clicking on PRE-ORDER FOR FREE OR UNLOCK FOR FREE. They will then appear in your content library, ready to be watched when available.  All films and events do NOT automatically appear in your Content Library, even with a pass.  
  • When you’re ready to watch, click the WATCH NOW button in the middle of your screen and enjoy!
  • You will have 24 hours once you hit play to finish viewing the film.

STEP FOUR: WAYS TO WATCH YOUR PROGRAMS

  • Directly through your computer or other device. 
  • Use your smart phone or laptop to “Cast” or “AirPlay” films to your TV
  • Connect your computer to your TV with an HDMI cord.
  • Or…HAVE APPLE TV OR ROKU?
    • Check out Montclair Film’s new free app in both the Roku and Apple TV app stores.  Note: This is NOT an app for your phone.  You must have a 4th generation or greater Apple TV to access the app store. 
    • Simply search for “Montclair Film” in the App Store, download and install it and follow the onscreen instructions to link the app to your existing Eventive account. 
    • Once linked, films that have been “UNLOCKED” in your Eventive account will appear on screen in your User Library, ready to be enjoyed in high quality on your home theater system.
