PT Film Festival goes virtual this year

Posted

We’re all staying home more these days, watching greater quantities of TV and movies than is typical, but rarely do we stream anything quite so unique as true tradition.

The 21st Annual Port Townsend Film Festival will go virtual this year, offering a streaming selection of more than 75 films and a plethora of filmmaker interviews from Sept. 24 to Oct. 4.

All-inclusive passes, film packs, and individual film tickets will be available so “attendees” can curate their own perfect viewing experience, according to event officials.

“We’ve all been riding the roller coaster that is 2020, and now is the time we put our hands up for the next twist and turn on the ride,” organizers said. “Though this year’s festival may look different than the 20 past, we’re still committed to bringing these important works to our community, both near and far.”

By streaming the films online, they can be watched anywhere in the world, officials noted, thus potentially opening the festival to a new, larger audience. 

Passes and tickets will be available later this month through www.ptfilmfest.com.
