Advantages to a virtual screening:

~ Have a big screen movie night in the comfort of your home, and watch in your PJs!

~ Families that live far apart can all watch at the same time and you can have fun talking about the films together!

~ We will have an online chat box before the films, during the intermission, and after the films to stay connected with you. Let us know your favorite way to prepare popcorn!
~ We can reach a much larger audience- basically world-wide. We think that this is the biggest benefit of going virtual; we are so inspired by these films and are excited to share them with as many people as we can. Please help us spread the word!

~ Have plans the night of the Festival? The Film Festival will be available for watching up to 5 days after the show.

We will be sending an email to you with easy to follow instructions for connecting to the film screening room.  Technicians will be on-hand to help with computer questions a half hour prior to the start of the films and throughout the show.
