Sounds interesting, indeed. Have to wait for the schedule and lineup, though.

Probably the same as today, unless someone dies.

Will be interesting to see what films they'll be streaming though. Whether it's big(ger) names, or just filler.

maybe - it's clear that someone needs a rip-roaring economy to bolster reelection chances so we got to get to 3% unemployment ASAP. Will cinemas reopen within the month? Will anyone go? What will they be showing? While I tend to agree with you, I'm not willing to place a bet either way, ;)

Wonder when the program will be out? I've heard nothing since the festival was announced.

From what I am reading here and there, it feels it is being downplayed ; it will be documentaries, conversations, films from previous editions - definitely not fresh stuff we typically see in these festivals, if there was any hope for that.

Welcome to the forum btw :cheers:

I would very much like to see some sort of lineup/selections list or what have you. Even if it's online I still have to schedule time to watch things...

I heard they were going to be showing new films, just not the hyped ones, which doesn't bother me because the hyped ones will get a general release anyway. But I was hoping to see Brighton 4, which is one of the lower profile films that was supposed to screen at Cannes

Thanks for the welcome :cheers:

Oh OK, hope you are right then, and they find some agreements with distributors.

I see several titles listed as 360 VR.

Is this something where we need VR glasses to view and/or appreciate the work?
Does youtube support VR media?

You will need a headset to best enjoy them on YouTube but you can watch them without as well.

Anyone has some recs for the line-up ?
Among my interests, there are
- all the shorts from Cannes 2019
- Ulrike Ottinger's Ticket of No Return (1979)
- docs such as Rick Powell : The Individualist and Bridges of Sarajevo
- some interviews I guess
I am a bit clueless for the rest.

I'm not thrilled with the lineup tbh. The only one I've seen is Los pasos dobles, which was a very solid if very festivally film, but that was making the rounds at festivals like five years ago.

There are some Chinese & Japanese films lined up, so it definitely has me interested. But how exactly is this going to go down? Is there a certain window when these films can be watched, or is it more like a classic film fest where a certain film airs at a certain time? And how does that even work in a global context?

From faqs

WHEN IS THE FESTIVAL & HOW CAN I WATCH?
The 10-day online festival is from May 29 - June 7 on www.youtube.com/weareone. Each film or program will have a first screening at a scheduled time but don’t worry if you miss it! Many of the films will be available on VOD to watch at your leisure through the course of the festival.

--

The first screening times are all on the schedule on the website. But since it says 'many' not 'all', I don't know how you know if it's one that will be available throughout or not.

Thanks! It doesn't explicitly say that the VODs are free, but I'm going to assume they are. I think I'm going to have to start scheduling these things because more and more film fests are announcing online versions.
