We Are One: YouTube to Host Free Virtual Film Festival

The covid-19 outbreak has resulted in the cancellation of many big international film festivals. But a new virtual festival and fundraiser called We Are One will let you see the films – for free!

YouTube has announced that it will host We Are One, a 10-day virtual film festival featuring programming from the Cannes Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Berlin International Film Festival, Venice International Film Festival, Venice Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival. Documentaries, narrative features, shorts, music, comedy and panel discussions will all be included.

We Are One will begin on May 27, 2020 and run through June 7, 2020. To see the films, all you have to do is visit youtube.com/WeAreOne. More good news: the programming will be ad-free.

We don’t yet know the exact films that will be shown, but YouTube says it will announce a specific schedule in the next few weeks.

YouTube has also asked that viewers make a donation toward covid-19 relief.
