Cannes, Tribeca, Sundance Film Festival & others join to create free online film festival

A new online film festival called ‘We Are One: Global Film Festival’ will launch at the end of May.

Following the closures of theatres and the cancellations of events such as SXSW and Cannes Film Festival, 20 film festivals have come together to stream movies on Youtube for free.

In a joint statement on Monday Tribeca Enterprises and YouTube said they will launch ‘We Are One: A Global Film Festival.’

Without giving away any details of what will be included, it was revealed that starting on May 29 Berlin, Cannes, Venice, Sundance, Toronto and Tribeca Film Festivals will curate films for the online festival.

Cannes Film Festival organisers said their involvement would help, “to spotlight truly extraordinary films and talent, allowing audiences to experience both the nuances of storytelling from around the world and the artistic personalities of each festival.”

With the films being made available for free, organisers have asked viewers to make donations to the World Health Organization ‘s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal spoke on the festival saying, “All of the world needs healing right now.”

The news follows an announcement from Amazon that they would stream films that were supposed to be shown at SXSW this year.
