River Bend Film Festival goes virtual

NOW: River Bend Film Festival goes virtual

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind.-- The River Bend Film Festival is going virtual starting Thursday, Oct. 1 through Oct.3.

The three-day film festival was held at the Goshen Theatre last year, but like so many events this year it’ll be all online due to COVID-19. 

 “The mission of our event is to support independent filmmakers and to give their voice to a larger audience and so that’s what we’re doing we’re doing it in a different way but we’re still honoring that mission,” Adrienne Nesbitt, the River Bend Festival Director said.

 The 19th annual River Bend Film Festival can be viewed from anywhere, as long as you purchase a ticket. The film festival is partnering with Eventive, a virtual cinema solution for attendees to stream content safely and to ensure ticket sales are handled securely. River Bend Film Festival will have tons of independent films to watch, from short films, documentaries to feature-length- films from around the globe. This year’s film festival has something for all movie enthusiasts. Attendees can also access panels, workshops, and special events 

 “We are showing seven different short blocks, two feature films, we’ve got workshops and panels still so it’s just all going to be online,” Nesbitt said. “And the nice thing is we still got to do Q&A’s from the filmmakers to let them talk about their projects and their films. Still getting to hear stories that they're hoping to tell. It’s just in a little bit of a different format this year.”
