How do I rent a film?

The General Public (ie not teachers or schools) can view films by creating an account, finding the film they would like to watch and click “Rent”. The film will then appear in their library

What ratings do the films have?

The Australian public is well versed in the Australian Classification Board’s classifications schema of G, PG, M, MA. Films with an Australian theatrical release in cinemas will have been classified by the Board according to this schema. Where films have a limited release at a film festival, the Australian Classification Boards allows film festivals to undertake this classification using their expertise to employ 3 categories: All Ages, 15+ and 18+. Under the title of each film in the Adelaide Film Festival Youth program you will find a rating based on either the: - Australian Classification Board rating of G, PG, M, MA OR - Adelaide Film Festival assigned classification of NC-10, NC-12 or NC-15+ (NC: Non-Classified)

How long do I have to watch a film after it had been rented?

Films remain in your library for full fortnight. Once rented, the items will be available in your account for 14 days. Once you press play on a specific film, the watch window begins and you can watch that film as many times as you like. This applies to both general public and schools purchases.

Is there a limit on the amount some films can be rented?

Yes. Due to distribution agreements, some films may have a cap applied to the number of times it may be rented and viewed. Make sure you get in and watch what you can before these are reached!

The film says it is ‘not available in your country’?

Films on AFF Youth are only available to stream if you are based in Australia. Make sure you don’t have an international VPN turned on.

I can’t see a film’s subtitles?

You will need to click CC in your video browser to enable English subtitles.
