Program tags In this year's program magazine you will find so called tags next to the film texts. You photograph the tag and the relevant film trailer is sent directly to the mobile. We hope this new technology will make it easier for film lovers to choose which movies to see. The program you need for this service to work can be down loaded to your mobile on beetag.se SMS tickets Every year the film festival handles more than 40 000 paper tickets but this year the audience can choose to get their ticket sent straight to their mobile. A ticket link is sent straight to you mobile and then you down load your ticket and show the mobile display while entering the cinema where it is scanned. You will be able to buy several tickets and have them sent to different phones.
