Epic Games is bringing a night at the movies right to Fortnite players’ homes
Epic Games is bringing a night at the movies right to Fortnite players’ homes with its own animated short film festival being broadcast through Party Royale.
Starting on Saturday, Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. ET, players can watch acclaimed animated short films around the world through the game’s shared virtual space as part of the Short Nite Film Festival. The total runtime for the compilation of short films is approximately 30 minutes and will run on a continuous loop for 24 hours before coming to an end on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 2 p.m. ET.
Among the 12 animated short films is Bench from director Rich Webber, which is currently long-listed for a BAFTA award. From BlueZoo Animation Studio, Lynx & Birds will be shown, as well as Jamille van Wijngaarden’s slapstick film about a pet bird and a curious cat, Catastrophe; and the Oscar-nominated film A Single Life from the writing and directing team of Job Roggeveen, Joris Oprins and Marieke Blaauw.
To take part, you won’t need a movie ticket. All you have to do is jump into Party Royale and follow this guide to get to the Big Screen, where videos will be screened. You will also be given a choice to watch Short Nite in standard Battle Royale via Picture-in-Picture.
If you need subtitles for a film, they will be available in a variety of languages. To watch with subtitles, all you have to do is enable them in the Audio Settings. Creators can invite their fans there live, as there is no recording allowed. To protect the content, streams or VODs of these films will go dark.
And as a heads-up for Content Creators, just like with any theater, there’s no recording of these films during Short Nite. Instead, invite your fans there live! Any streams or VODs of these films (whether from Party Royale or via Picture-in-Picture) will go dark per content protection rules.
