In recognition of and response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and local mitigation measures, the RRFF Board of Directors has unanimously voted to shift the Red Rose Film Festival to a digital, streaming platform for the 2020 season.
We're actively learning from fellow festivals across the globe how to best translate our amazing experience into one that our guests can enjoy from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Don't worry—you'll still have the opportunity to enjoy a vast catalog of original independent stories from across the globe, and we'll be sharing updates and news when we can. For now, join our newsletter and social media pages.
Honestly, so do we. We'll work through them over the next few months and bring you a fantastic follow-up to our amazing inaugural year. RRFF 2.0: The Digital Sequel is not exactly the sophomore year we intended, but it's an opportunity to show the community the inspiration of art and the art of inspiration.
Your contribution will enable us to produce our amazing festival in a new format this year. We are grateful for your generosity.
