Sugg: We Are One Global Film Festival

Due to COVID-19, many Film Festivals around the world have been cancelled, but that's not stopping cinema.

Starting on May 29, 2020 Film lovers from all around the world will be able to enjoy the We Are One Global Film Festival, taking some of the films from the big screen to YouTube so you can watch them at home.

The Festival is "born out of the idea that the film community can come together in times of crises " both in celebration of films and in support by providing much needed relief for COVID-19 efforts", and you'll be able to donate to help several organizations fighting COVID-19.

Which of the films that shown in the Festival do you want to see the most?

I wish I had made this earlier, but I only learned about this today.

I was looking at the program yesterday. I may watch some short films.

One thing I didn't understand was that there were a bunch of VR films listed. Wouldn't I need special equipment to enjoy them?

I would suppose so. However there’s no information about it. I’ll try one later and see what happens.

Yesterday I watched ‘The stories that prepared us’ an interesting short telling the story of COVID with scenes from dozens of films.

Since I try to see films from every country, I also saw Crazy World from Uganda, and I’m try to watch Late Marriage from Georgia as well as the Angola and Cape Verde films. All of them countries I have not seen any film yet.

It's on YouTube. Apparently you can watch the video without the VR headset BUT you will have to manually scroll to look around 360 degrees. Probably not worth it in that case.

The only one I've seen from the list is Late Marriage (2001), but I'd like to see The Epic of Everest (1924).

I really like this poll and I'm definitely planning on watching some of these films, especially the short films, which I'm particularly interested in. 

May I make one small suggested edit to the intro?

Which of the films that have been or will be shown in the Festival do you want to see the most?

Or this might be better:

I just watched three of the short films. So, I guess that defaults my option to that vote. I cannot say that any of the other films are worth going out of my way....

Please note that two of the below films are NSFW (and I wonder if they violate YouTube's guidelines for sex and nudity).

L'Heure de L'Ours AKA And Then The Bear. Neat little animated short film: 7/10;
The Distance Between Us and the Sky (2019): 7/10.
White Echo (2019), 5/10.

I saw Late Marriage, which has a lengthy and praised sex scene as a pivotal part of the plot.

Before watching the film I got a notification about the content and was asked to sign in in my YouTube account to be allowed to watch it.

Considering that, I'm sure YouTube is aware of the content and is allowing it to be shown inside the festival.

I suppose they'll be removed once the festival ends.
