Films will be scheduled to facilitate viewing on Friday through Sunday, Oct. 15-17. Following each film, the viewing audience can participate in a live Zoom Q&A session with the filmmaker.

• On-Demand Festival runs Oct. 18-24, featuring films accepted through FilmFreeway as well as films and recorded filmmaker Q&As from the Livestream Festival. All will be available on-demand on the website. The livestreamed Festival Finale will feature the Audience Choice Awards presentations and the screening of the audience favorite feature and short films on Sunday, Oct. 24.
