The full lineup of We Are One Global Film Festival, unveiled

The COVID-19 pandemic has put the entire industry in a strange position. Film festivals – giants like Cannes, Karlovy Vary, and Tribeca among others, included – have had to cancel to ensure its patrons’ safety.

Some opt to embrace streaming as an alternative, like the 22nd Thessaloniki Documentary, where Alyx Arumpac’s drug war-doco, “Aswang”, is currently a part of the program. You can’t watch it without a VPN in the Philippines, though.

In an effort to bring movies to cinephiles’ homes, We Are One – a free online film festival co-curated by dozens of renowned fests all over the world – is premiering May 29th on YouTube. The fest hopes to raise funds for COVID-19 relief through donations.

The lineup for the fest is vast. There are 34 feature films, 71 shorts, and 15 360 VR films, among others. Included are Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit’s earnest youth comedy, “Mary is Happy, Mary is Happy”, Yukun Xin’s rural drama “Wrath of Silence”, and Oldřich Lipský’s beloved classic, “Adele Has Not Had Supper Yet”.

Perhaps more exciting are the panels, which includes conversations with Guillermo Del Toro, Kore-eda Hikorazu, Olivier Assayas, Denis Villanueve, John Waters, Ang Lee, David Cronenberg, and Zhang Ziyi, among many others.

Each feature, short, or panel will go live as scheduled and will remain for the entire duration of the festival. Check out the full lineup and schedule on We Are One’s website.
