Here's proof that film communities can come together during a global pandemic.
Are you missing the collaborative and creative environments of your favorite film festivals? I know I am. Several fests are moving forward with online screenings, and one new fest that film lovers might enjoy begins today. Audiences can enjoy 10 days of free curated content through We Are One: A Global Film Festival.
The festival runs May 29 to June 7 and includes programming from Berlin International Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, and more.
The mix of features, shorts, and VR films will premiere at specific times online, but will also be available as VOD.
The programming is available exclusively on YouTube on the We Are One channel.
The content from We Are One is free, but viewers can donate money in support of COVID-19 relief efforts if they wish.
Donations will go to the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, Save the Children, Doctors Without Borders, and several other organizations. View the festival's information page for more details.
