It is important to us to provide all users with barrier-free access to the festivalportal. We design the plattform to support technologies for barrier-free use, e.g. keyboard navigation, screen readers. All pages are easy and intuitive to use. We pay attention to sufficient contrasts and a page structure with semantic markups. Subtitles are individually adjustable in size and color. When possible, we provide audio descriptions and subtitles for the hearing impaired.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for websites to improve accessibility for people with impairments. Here you can find detailed documentation on the accessibility (VPAT© Version 2.4.Rev) based on these requirements.
On the portal we offer films that have received different age ratings from the Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle der Filmwirtschaft (FSK). To ensure compliance with the requirements of the Interstate Treaty on the Protection of Minors in the Media (JMStV), registration on our portal is only possible by stating the date of birth. If the age falls below the age rating of the FSK for a film, the film cannot be played by the user. You can also enter a PIN and set an age in your customer account. Films from this age and above can then only be played by entering the PIN.
The movies are only available from Germany, due to licence agreements.
We suggest an broadband internet connection with at least 2 MBit/s data transmission rate for movies in SD quality and 6 MBit/s data transmission rate for movies in HD-quality. Generally, streams also work with a low speed of Internet.
Our Player automatically takes an adaption of the movie quality, if the Internet speed isn’t enough.
There are many free options on the Internet that can test your actual Internet speed, e.g. at www.wieistmeineip.de/speedtest.
