On Friday April 3, FFA hosted its fifth call in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We were joined by several festivals who have taken or are planning to take their events online using various platforms, including the Ann Arbor Film Festival, Queens World Film Festival, Aspen Shorts Fest, San Luis Obispo Film Festival, Cleveland Film Festival, and Ashland Independent Film Festival, with some final words from our partner Film Festival Flix. There are many options for taking your festival online, however, the key things to note include making sure that your media is uploaded and tested, determining your best marketing plan, educating your audiences and giving yourself ample time to achieve an online festival that matches that quality of your brand. Watch the call here.
