Films set to debut at over 20 film festivals around the world, will stream on YouTube for free.
Front row seats to the biggest film festivals of the year won’t be on the French Riviera or in a theatre in Salt Lake City, they’ll be in your living room. In response to the pandemic, 20 major film festivals from around the world are coming together for 10 days of curated films streamed on YouTube for free.
The “We Are One: A Global Film Festival,” will showcase feature films, shorts, documentaries, music, comedy, and panel discussions from May 29 to June 7. All viewers will be able to make donations to the World Health Organization’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
“We are proud to join with our partner festivals to spotlight truly extraordinary films and talent, allowing audiences to experience both the nuances of storytelling from around the world and the artistic personalities of each festival,” Cannes Film Festival executives said in a statement.
The festival will feature programming curated by the Berlin International Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival, Tokyo International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Venice Film Festival and more.
