Flahertiana Festival will be held in a new format

As a result of painful doubts, the Flahertiana team decided that the anniversary festival will be held online due to the unstable situation with COVID-19. Festival dates will stay the same as planned, December 11-17.

Although we have already postponed the dates of the festival hoping that the epidemic will subside, now we must admit that we cannot risk the health of our guests and spectators by bringing people from all over the world. In addition, we cannot be sure that the cinemas will not be closed on the eve of the festival or during it in December. Despite the atmosphere of general uncertainty, we will try to preserve the most important thing – communication with the audience, so it will be possible not only to watch each film but also to discuss it online.

The competition programs of the film festival have already been formed and will be announced in the nearest future. Traditionally, the festival holds three competitions: International, National, and Student. The fourth training and pitching of film projects Flahertiana Forum and Flahertiana Workshop will also take place online. The full program will be available in December on our website.

Most of the planned non-competition programs and events have been postponed to 2021, including a conference on the development of documentary film distribution. And this year we hope that together with spectators and participants we will celebrate two big anniversaries – the 20th festival and 25 years in Perm – in a new format.

We are now in the process of negotiating with an online screening platform and will tell you later where you can watch the best documentaries. Follow our news, take care of yourself, and see you soon!
