We would love for you to share your WIFI Film Festival experiences in your news coverage, but it’s imperative that all accredited media also respect the rights of the creators that participate in WIFI. This Press Photo & Video Policy covers what type of photo and video capturing is and isn’t allowed. Content includes, without limitation, videos, photographs, audio recordings, text, graphics, logos, and images made available to the attendee during the festival.

Professional Photography and Videography is permitted at WIFI only with press permission provided by WIFI coordinators. By accepting press credentials, you agree to the terms detailed in this Photo and Video Policy.

Press credentials are issued at the discretion of WIFI and can be revoked at any time if WIFI determines they are misused.


To not distract audience members or interfere with film showings, photography is prohibited inside the venue.


Permitted Videography

  • Filming from your seat at Film & TV Festival venues is allowed except at the Paramount and Stateside Theatres.

Restricted Activities

  • Your press credentials will NOT allow you to audio or video stream, broadcast or otherwise transmit, retransmit or copy in any form any WIFI showing longer than :45 continuous seconds.

General Public

Personal digital cameras (excluding SLR/DSLRs) are allowed for capture of content for personal, non-commercial (non-sponsored and non-monetized) use, subject to the limitations below.

Attendees may take photos and shoot video from their seats, as long as they are not obstructing views, using any sort of device like a tripod or selfie-stick, or using a flash after the session begins. Live streaming of any kind is not permitted.

Attendees are not permitted to take photos or shoot video where it is unsafe or disruptive such as in doorways, fire exits, hallways, sidewalks, etc. Not complying with a request to move or stop capturing content could result in your removal.
