Various authorities suggest that one uses voir for the cinema and regarder for the tv. Could you clarify? After I watched the film, after I saw the film... ??
We actually accept both regarder and voir in this kwiz question.
The difference between watching ( regarder) and seeing ( voir) isn't specific to the cinema or the tv.

Hope that helps!
Depending on context --- regarder takes a sense of examiner / considérer
whereas voir takes a sense of apercevoir / comprendre / examiner
Examiner being closest, in terms of synonymy; to both regarder and voir.
So with respect to cinema or T.V., it would come down to what was in the mind of the viewer when observing and the context of the point in time.
This is not a definitive answer but I think that you will get the point of my comment.
Hope this helps.
