    I don't know anything about what happened there. Via app should be chargeable, I am a film maker and expect free access to the app in return, I was treated like a spectator.

    Response from festival:

    Dear Mr.Christopher, this is a "Art for Art" space where content is the king and in order to respect the creation NIFFA was streamed for subscribers. As far as the app is concerned, it definitely had free access for 30 days during the period of NIFFA to register and join few parallel events curated along with streaming movies, perhaps you may have missed the live.
    However very soon on the launch verison you can experience maximum events free for lifetime.
    Thanks for your participation!
