Festivals Pivot with Online Events

As hundreds of film festivals have been postponed or cancelled through the first half of 2020, many organizations are creating unique ways to take their programming online.

The 58th Ann Arbor is streaming their entire festival online,  and other FFA members have plans for streaming their films, to continue to support both independent filmmakers and their audiences. Aspen ShortsFest will also screen their festival online. Access codes to screen film programs are on sale now through aspenshowtix.com and people should buy in advance as there is a limited number per program – like a traditional festival. The festival is still able to have their jury review all films and denote award winners in 5 categories which are Oscar®-qualifying.

Anyone offering online programming is invited to add their events in this sharable document, available to all. The opportunity of course, is to gain new audience members from around the world!
