Attention all film lovers! One of the biggest film events of the year is starting today and you’re definitely gonna wanna check it out! So as you probably know, thanks to COVID-19, film festivals are looking a little different this year. Obviously they can’t happen in person. And to deal with that, a massive online film festival is taking their place.

Seriously, this thing is huge. It’s pretty much taken all the big film festivals from around the world and combined them to make a massive, all encompassing, event. A global film festival, if you will. The partners of this thing are pretty insane. They include TIFF, Cannes, Sundance, the Tribeca Film Festival, and loads more. Yeah. Some pretty big names going on here.

The 10-day celebration is a chance for filmmakers and fans alike to come together to celebrate films from around the world. They’ve got an amazing curated selection of short film, feature, television shows, and more. And it’ll all be streaming right on YouTube!

Now, the film festival is completely free to access. But it is also serving as a fundraiser for COVID-19 relief. So donations are allowed an encouraged. And all the money raised will be given to amazing organizations like the World Health Organization, UNICEF,  Save the Children, Doctors Without Borders, and more. There will be a donate button on every film that screens for those of you who are interested in giving back.

So get online and check out some of these incredible films! What a wonderful way to keep yourself entertained while stuck in quarantine this week!
