Does having access to screener.be mean that I can get a film for, let’s say, my festival?

No! When you like the film and would like to schedule it for a festival, we expect you to follow the normal procedures, i.e. to invite the film.
We will then see with the producer/rights holders whether a festival screening is feasible.

While watching a film, everything regularly pauzes! Is there anything that I can do or check to solve this problem?

We’re sorry to hear this because we went at great length to make sure that you would be able to watch films uninterruptedly.
However, all depends from a number of elements that are not under our control, such as bandwidth, distance from the nearest mirror server, etc. What you can do is pause the player and allow the site to buffer a few seconds.
Press play after a minute or so and see if the streaming has improved.
In case this does not help, please describe the specific problem (and give as many details as possible about your computer, your internet connection, your location,… and send this to Flanders Image: mvanneck@vaf.be.
