There's a saying in Hollywood - 'The show must go on' - and in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and through the wonders of modern technology, The Annapolis Film Festival (AFF) will in fact go on ... just a little differently this year.
Festival organizers have announced that audiences will be able to view the films they planned to show this weekend in Annapolis online - in the comfort and safety of their homes from March 27-29, 2020.
Most of the films (some weren't cleared for streaming) will be available for viewing on a secure streaming platform (like Netflix), The Annapolis Film Festival Channel, in partnership with FilmFestivalFlix.com.
Existing AFF ticket and pass holders will receive a code honoring their existing credentials. Meanwhile - new users can purchase multi film weekend passes or individual tickets for films ($15).
The Annapolis Film Festival Channel is live now and will include shorts, documentary features and narrative features, as well as discussions with filmmakers.
