The Process

To watch the films online, please head to athome.dca.org.uk and, if this is your first visit, create an account. A DCA at Home account is required to watch any of our films online but creating an account is totally free.

You will only be asked for payment when you want to watch a film. Once you have created an account, you have a number of options – to rent a single film or collection of shorts for 48 hours, or to rent access to a film or a bundle of films for the duration of the festival.

Browse the Discovery Film Festival collection and select your film or bundle of films.

Click on the image to go to that film or bundle of films’ page, where you can view the prices, and click Rent. Alternatively you can hover over the image to view the prices and click through from the browsing page.

Enter your payment details and click Rent.

Either click Play Now to watch immediately, or close the message and return to My Library later to watch the film.

Rented films will remain in your library for 14 days – this is called the Rental Window. Once you click Play Now you will have 48 hours to watch your film – this is called the Watch Window. You can watch the film as many times as you like during this 48 hour period.

Please note: all online access to all films will be terminated at midnight on Sun 7 November 2021.

More details can be found here: athome.dca.org.uk/page/fa-qs/

Please note: each account allows you to log in and watch the films on a variety of different devices but only on one device at a time. Simultaneous screenings from one account are not possible. If a school is planning to view several films from one account these cannot be at the same time.
