Tribeca Film Festival and YouTube join to lead 20 international film festivals, including SFF, to present a global edition. Sydney Film Festival joins film festivals from around the world to launch We Are One: A Global Film Festival, an unprecedented 10-day digital festival on YouTube beginning on May 29.
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. https://youtu.be/QVuf5iTExis
