Daily special

Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Vail Film Festival has announced that it will be hosting a virtual festival from May 15 to 17.

The festival generally presents works by independent artists with an emphasis on female filmmakers. As usual, the festival will screen more than 50 films across genres, including narrative, documentary, short and student films. Streaming access will be available nationwide, and pass and access instructions are available on the festival website.

An online film festival allows us to pursue our mission of supporting independent filmmakers by highlighting their incredible work and honoring the winning films through our jury and public awards. It also allows us to protect the health and well-being of our filmmakers, guests, sponsors and the local community, which has always been our top priority, said festival executive director Sean Cross in a Press release.

“It is exciting to see that the number of people accessing the festival program will be much larger this year, with people around the world watching films from home. But we look forward to hosting the physical festival again in 2021. For the filmmakers and participants, the in-person relationships you establish in the real world are irreplaceable, “said festival deputy executive director Scott Cross in A press release.

The film festival also traditionally includes a round table, which is also being held on a virtual basis this year. The Women in Film: Personal Stories round table, organized by the Vail Film Festival and its partner Stage32, will focus on panelists’ journeys in the industry.

This year’s panelists are director and producer Leslie Alejandro; actress, director and producer Alexandra Baretto; actor and producer Lesley-Ann Brandt; Creative Coalition producer and CEO Robin Bronk; producer and director Mali Elfman; and producer Ashleigh Snead.

The festival also organizes the GMC Audience Award competition and, with online entry, the winner will receive round-trip flights for two, accommodation at Vail and VIP passes for the Vail Film Festival 2021 from March 25 to 28 .
