The Vegan Film Festival Goes Virtual for 2020

2020 was supposed to be a big year for the International Vegan Film Festival. After two successful years, they were going to take the show on the road to preview the 2020 films in different towns and cities across the globe. COVID-19 put a wrench in their plans, but it didn't stop them from making a plan B. The team @ IVFF adapted and took this year's festival virtual to create an online event where vegans and non-vegans from all over the world can gather to celebrate a plant-based lifestyle and to learn a little bit more about what veganism is and why people choose to live animal-free. 

This Saturday, July 18th We Animals Media and IVFF will be premiering the five short films that were going to be part of this year's show. Then, they will be hosting a Q & A with Founder and Director of WAM (We Animals Media), Jo-Anne McArthur, and Filmmaker and Multimedia Producer, Kelly Guerin. The evening will include showings of Gold Doesn't Rust: The Failing Standard of Animal Testing and Its Alternatives, Reclaim, Promises, Undercover, and The Farm in My Backyard. You can see previews of all the films here.

Tickets to attend the virtual event are only $10 and they can be purchased here. The show will start at 8:30 p.m. EST this Saturday, but don't worry if you can't tune in live. Ticket holders will be able to replay the event in its entirety for a few weeks after the live show.

​WAM's mission is to bring visibility to hidden animals worldwide through compelling photography and film. This virtual event is only one of the ways that they are showcasing and supporting the vegan community. They are also currently hosting a photo essay content that you can enter through August 31st of this year. You can find out more about that content here.

If you are wondering what veganism is, this is a great place to find out a little bit more from the privacy of your own home. Tune in!
