Local Film Festivals in the Wake of a Pandemic
Jun 26 2020
Local film festivals are very important to not only up and coming filmmakers, but to the communities and businesses that host these events, and the residents, filmmakers, and staff that gather to celebrate the achievements of such filmmakers. Covid-19 has caused many local film festivals to move online or reschedule for the following year. Dan Brawley, Chief Instigating Officer of Cucalorus Film Festival, talks about the ways in which this change affects the festival experience, how Surfalorus and other local North Carolina film festivals will respond, and the importance of local film festivals and our ability to gather and support local filmmakers.
