Cannes Joins Forces With Berlin, Sundance, Toronto, Venice, and 16 Other Festivals for Global Film Event

With their 2020 events mostly cancelled, 21 of the world's top film festivals have joined forced for a special online event - We Are One, A Global Film Festival.

The 10 day event runs 29 May - 7 June on a dedicated YouTube channel, screening a range of features, shorts, and panel discussions, curated by each of the festival teams. Films will run on a specific schedule, so to catch them, you'll need to tune in at the appropriate time. Some films will also be available for on-demand viewing afterwards.
