You’ve got two ways to experience the festival. You can either subscribe to the streaming channel dedicated to the festival, or you can head to Landmark Cinemas City Centre for some in-person screenings. The lineup focuses on dramas and documentaries, but there are some comedies and thrillers in there for good measure.

Finally, you could check out the ‘Lunchbox Shorts’ collection, featuring 5 short films ranging from 2 to 20 minutes. Running five straight days, this is another great way to explore the best films that 2020 has to offer. Plus, it definitely works with our short attention spans.
