For $10-$12, you can purchase a ticket for access to a streaming film. Once purchased, you’ll have a multi-day pass (this varies between films) to watch.
Some of these viewings include extras, such as BEATS, where you can watch alongside an exclusive pre-recorded conversation with director Brian Welsh and executive producer Steven Soderbergh, moderated by Slamdance’s Peter Baxter (presented by Slamdance).
BEATS is a universal story of friendship, rebellion and the irresistible power of music set against the backdrop of the Britain’s Criminal Justice and Public Order Act of 1994, which banned unlicensed raves across the U.K. BEATS follows best friends and polar opposites, Johnno and Spanner—who, realizing they are destined for different futures, sneak out to an illegal party in pursuit of one last crazy night together.

Tomaz, a former soldier, is left homeless after an accident and takes refuge in the decaying home of Magda, a lonely young woman in desperate need of help as she cares for her ailing mother. At first hesitant, Magda soon welcomes Tomaz into their lives. But as he gets closer to and begins to fall for Magda, Tomaz notices strange and unexplainable phenomena. Something seems very wrong with the mysterious old woman who never leaves the top floor, and Tomaz begins to suspect that Magda may in fact be a prisoner to her mother’s otherworldly bidding.
