How exactly does a free YouTube video “benefit the World Health O …How exactly does a free YouTube video “benefit the World Health Organization COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund”, whatever that is.Just sounds like naff content that’s using the pandemic as a marketing tool to me. And it’s not a festival, it’s just some YouTube videos.


Wow you really didn't take even 2 seconds to go through the content before putting that comment, right ! There is a big fat donate button on every video and for folks who really care they have the option of donating while enjoying some of the curated content which you usually would have seen only at film festivals.

Never said I was the first one mate, anyways, lets agree to disagree on our views here as they are so divergent. Have a nice one.
Thanks for this. The Trojan Records and Ricky Powell docs look right up my street. Some of the film maker interviews look interesting as well. Makes a change from watching cats falling off tables.

I am a film fan, but some of these are... a tough watch shall we say.

Any recommendations?
Use the filters to see the sort of thing that might appeal. I'm sure there's lots of kids (and parents!) that might enjoy the Dreamworks shorts..

Thanks. Some good content there
Wow, didn't know about this! Thanks for sharing.

I miss going to film festivals. I used to live very close to a mall that had 11 screens and would be the main host of 2-week long independent film festivals. There are so many movies that are gems and are never released :(.
Some really great short films on here so far. Have watched 'Toto', 'Egg' and the dreamworks shorts. All have been great so far!
Hi, does anyone have a direct link to 'Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records' as I'm damned if I can find it! Thanks
