Streaming Festivals: Cannes, Sundance and Others To Stream on Youtube for Free

The long lasting damages and effects from the coronavirus on the cinematic world will not be known for a long time. However, it seems that the movie industry is ever evolving with theaters worldwide shut down to assist in preventing further spread of Covid-19. With SXSW offering up its movie festival content for free via Amazon Prime, it looks like numerous others are taking note and joining in the fight to support film makers and production houses. Over 20 different film festivals including Cannes and Sundance are going to move their fests online so that their featured movies can still get some publicity and viewership. 

The huge move is part of the We Are One: A Global Film Festival that will begin on May 29th and will run until June 7th. The 10 day event will feature full lengths, shorts, documentaries, music, and panel discussions. The virtual fest will feature content from Cannes, Sundance, Venice, Toronto International, Berlin International, Tribeca and several others. Viewers will be able to donate to the World Health Organization's Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund. 

All the content will be available on Youtube for the low cost of $0. They're hoping to raise more money for research and the development of vaccines and cures for the horrible virus. We'll update as we learn more.
