Like everything else, COVID-19 has forced film festivals around the world to pivot quickly. From Cannes to SXSW to Tribeca, spring and summer festivals have been canceled, postponed, or moved online in response to the pandemic.

But what about festivals scheduled for the rest of the year? What are they doing? And what does this mean for filmmakers like you, who had planned to use festivals as their primary way to get their work out into the world?

These questions, and even some of your own, will be answered in a live online panel, 2020 is NOT Canceled: Film Festivals and Submissionsin the Age of COVID-19. Join Crickett Rumley, NYFA’s Director of Film Festivals, for a discussion with veteran festival directors and programmers:
