Major film festivals to unite for YouTube event-free, starts today


Major film festivals to unite for YouTube event
27 April 2020


Major film festivals - including Berlin, Cannes, Toronto and Venice - are to join forces for an online event.

We Are One: A Global Film Festival, will be hosted by YouTube from 29 May.

It comes after coronavirus caused disruption to many international events, as the film industry ground to a halt.

The 10-day digital alternative will help to raise funds for the World Health Organization (WHO)'s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund and beyond.

Twenty festivals from around the world are involved including BFI London Film Festival, Jerusalem Film Festival, Mumbai Film Festival and Marrakech International Film Festival, as well as Sundance Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.

"All of the world needs healing right now."

The free event will include films, shorts, documentaries, music, comedy, and conversations and a full schedule will be available nearer to next month's event.
