Sydney Film Festival has joined 20 major film festivals from around the world lead by Tribeca and including Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Toronto, Sundance and San Sebastian, together with YouTube, to present a free 10-day digital festival. The event will raise funds for the World Health Organization Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley said, “From May 29, SFF will be part of an unprecedented event: a global, digital and free film festival.

“The Festival is truly delighted to partner with these great festivals to celebrate our international community of storytellers and audiences.

“Sydney Film Festival looks forward to presenting Australian cinema in this global arena, and to bring joy and entertainment to audiences in need of relief.

“Over the past 67 years, SFF has been a platform for discovery, discussion, shared experiences and the exchange of ideas through film. In this challenging and uncertain climate, film is more vital than ever – bringing people together, online, to collectively explore the world and our times.

“Though we can’t be together in a cinema at the moment, we are excited to bring the Festival, and other international film festival selections, to homes around the world.”

We Are One: A Global Film Festival will run from May 29 to June 7 on YouTube.com.   Programming will be available for free, and will include films, shorts, documentaries, music, comedy, and conversations.
