THE WOODS HOLE FILM FESTIVAL: Is pleased to continue the 2020-2021 Woods Hole Film Festival Virtual (WHFF Virtual) screening series with a reprise of the award-winning 2018 feature documentary MR.

The WHFF Virtual screening series will run from October 2020 through May 2021 and will present independent films and special live events hosted on its online streaming platform on the first and third weekends of every month. Additional events may be added as well.
Due to the pandemic, last summer the 29th Woods Hole Film Festival transitioned to an online screening presentation format. Through hard work and staff dedication, the Festival worked around the clock for to deliver an 8-day event that presented 187 films from 25 different countries with films from every continent, including Antarctica. The Festival offered over 70 hours of live events, including 28 Filmmaker Chats streamed live to Facebook with 225 filmmaker participants and 18,000 views, 43 live Q&A’s with feature filmmakers, 8 workshops and panels and 5 music events. The WHFF Virtual screening series will build on this new presentation format as we grow and develop our virtual capacity.
Screening events are hosted online for a four-day viewing period and will usually include a live Q&A or discussion with filmmakers scheduled virtually during the viewing period. The selections include films from the Woods Hole Film Festival, as well as independent films curated specifically for the series. The series is part of an effort by the Woods Hole Film Festival to offer year-round independent film programming to supplement the annual summer Festival.
Tickets are $14 per person, $12, for Woods Hole Film Festival members and are on sale in advance at www.woodsholefilmfestival.org. Ticket purchasers will receive a custom link to view the film at home or on their mobile devices and will have 48 hours to complete watching the film (ending at 11:59 pm on October 18), once they begin playing it.
