HAVING PROBLEMS ACCESSING A FILM?
Here are some suggestions:
- Always check your spam/junk folders! We can’t stress this enough. When emails with confidential screeners like ours are sent out, some email addresses may mark them as suspicious and automatically put them in your junk folder. If you can’t find an email from us in your main Inbox, always check your other folders.
- If you are trying to access a film on Google Chrome but it won’t play for some reason, try clearing your cache on the browser? Not to worry. It’s very simple! Once your cache is cleared, there’s a good chance the film will play this time. Click Here for How to Clear Your Cache on Google Chrome
- If a film won’t load, try watching it on a different web browser (such as Safari, Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.). Simply log into your email on a different web browser, access the email you received with the voucher code(s) for the film(s), and click on it.
