Film Festivals in a Post-Coronavirus world

The Film Festival World

A State of Denial

The Day After Corona Dies

Surprise

  • It’s not as bad as we thought it would be. If planned with sensitivity and accuracy, a virtual Q&A can bring both the audience and the host to tears. It’s not exaggerated, I’ve been part of it.
  • It’s the Economy, Stupid (J. Carville, 1992): Sales are just great with online film festivals. Film festival directors might not tell you that, but it’s really good. We know that. Didn’t Marks say that our thoughts and ideas are products of material conditions? — Yes, he definitely said that and he was damn right. Film festival directors will not say goodbye so fast to such a nice revenue stream. Or at least their board will not allow them.
