How to ATX


 
ATX Television Festival is not your average festival; in fact, you may have never experienced an event quite like ours. Besides the TV of it all, attendees are a combination of fans and industry members, which creates unique opportunities for having the best time ever. We’re a small and passionate community, which allows for a more intimate and accessible experience than your typical festival. We want to share how we do things for y’all to keep in mind as you plan for this year’s virtual Season 10!


The ATX Way. First up, whether virtual or in person, check out our Code of Conduct before you start festivaling as it universally applies to all ATX Television Festival events.


HOW TO ATTEND. Our virtual ATX Television Festival Season 10 can be viewed HERE.

You can attend ATX Season 10 as a Festival Badgeholder, with a Day Pass, or with a Single Ticket. Different ATX Credentials allow for different access to the Festival.

  • Virtual Festival Badge: Access to ten (10) days of Programming (Screenings, Panels, Marquee Programming, and all Events), our Season 10 VOD Library with daily VOD releases.
  • Day Pass: Access to one (1) day’s Programming (Screenings, Panels, Marquee Programming, and select Events).
  • Single Ticket: Access to one (1) single piece of Programming. Single Tickets are only available for select Programming.

Make sure to check out our Tune In Details so you can have your set up ready to go! 


TYPES OF PROGRAMMING. ATX Season 10 may be virtual, but we’re still bringing you all the amazing ATX Programming you’ve come to expect from us.

  • Screenings: An episode followed by a Q&A with cast and creatives. Some Screenings are only available in the US and might have audience capacity limits set by our partners. Check out the Season 10 Guide to find out more about specific Screenings.
  • Panel: Conversations ranging from series specific or topical subjects.
  • Marquee: Evening featured programming presented by festival partners – think Opening and Closing Nights. Some Marquee Programming with Screenings are only available in the US and might have audience capacity limits set by our partners. Check out the Season 10 Guide to find out more about specific Screenings.
  • Event: Live and community-focused Programming, often including interactive chat and video elements, things like TV Trivia and Happy Hours.


When TO WATCH. Season 10 runs June 11 – 20, 2021, and you can check out the most up-to-date Programming Guide and Schedule here!

PREMIERE vs. REPLAY. All our Programming will PREMIERE at the time listed on our Schedule, and some Programming can be watched a little later on in our REPLAY section if you miss it. If / how long you have to REPLAY can depend on which piece of Programming it is and if you have a Badge or a Day Pass. You can see both the PREMIERE date/time and the REPLAY duration on each event page HERE.

You can also check the Schedule and corresponding colors to find out when and how long you’re able to watch.

  • Live: Tune in at the scheduled time! This Programming is happening LIVE and will NOT be available after it airs!
  • Limited Run: This Programming premieres at the published start time, but if you miss it, you have a little time! After it airs, it will be available to you until 2:00 am CT the following day in our Replay Section.
  • Festival Run: This Programming premieres at the published start time, but if you miss it, you have more time! If you have a Festival Badge, after the Programming airs, it will be available to you through the remaining run of the festival (Monday, June 21st at 2:00 am CT) in our Replay Section. If you have a Day Pass, after the Programming airs, it will be available to you until 2:00 am CT the following day in our Replay Section.
  • VOD Library: Watch on your own time! The VOD Library is only available to Festival Badgeholders. New additions to the VOD Library will be added each day at 9:00 am CT and are available to you through the run of the festival (Monday, June 21st at 2:00 am CT). Heads up, there are a few pieces of Programming in the VOD Library that won’t be available the whole time, so make sure to check the descriptions.

Please note, if you purchase a Single Ticket, regardless of the Programming’s When to Watch category, you must tune in at the scheduled time. 


FOOD & DRINK. One of the best parts of festivaling at home is getting to have your snacks and drinks whenever you want – and in case you haven’t started planning your Food & Drink festival strategy, we have a few suggestions to share based on our favorites! We’ve also put together a little Grocery List for you to get that pre-festival shopping run started.
