The second edition of the Accra Indie Filmfest (AiF) slated for July 20 – 26, 2020, will now go virtual.
The Filmfest brings together young and independent filmmakers from around the world to showcase their works and to also network with others.
But after a successful maiden edition in 2019, the management of AiF has decided to stage the festival on a virtual platform amidst the Coronavirus pandemic.
“In order to aid the fight of Coronavirus, the management of the festival deems it a responsibility to specially treat film lovers by taking the film festival to their homes.
“The festival is tying up all muscles to host a six-day long free streaming event on YouTube,” Mr. Edward Gyasi, Public Relations Officer (PRO) said in a statement.
The first five days of the festival would include film screenings, film workshops, and industry conversations, and the final day as a digital awards night on zoom and all festival’s social media handles and website (www.accraindiefilmfest.com).
