Applying the “Watching From” filter on the Schedule page will generate a listing of all CIFF46 Streams films and shorts programs available to stream from a specific location.
Disable dynamic IP addresses and VPNs while streaming CIFF46 Streams films and shorts programs as this will result in being unable to stream. Changing IP addresses, internet connections, or devices mid-stream prompts our platform to view that as a potential act of piracy. Refrain from changing locations or internet connections while streaming as streaming will stop, and you will be unable to continue streaming that film or shorts program.
Please note: Geo-restrictions are based on the current location (and IP address) of the viewer while streaming and are not determined by the primary address or residency of viewers.
