The Accra Indie FilmFest (AiF) will be hosting their second edition of the festival virtually.
The management of Accra Indie Filmfest (AiF) in a press statement signed by Edward Gyasi (AiF P.R.O) said the event will take place from July 20th to 26th, 2020.
“After successfully running the first edition of the festival in 2019, there came the much anticipation for the next edition of the festival where the world was preparing to meet in Accra to witness the creative geniuses of young and independent filmmakers across the world “, the statement said.
The world is currently experiencing a global pandemic (corona virus) and one of the key preventive protocols advised by the World Health Organization (WHO) is social distancing. This simply means a prevention of large gatherings.
“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 6 day long free streaming event on YouTube. The first 5 days will 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”, the statement added.
