Long Distance Film Festival is a new kind of film festival for this unprecedented moment in history — an entirely online, live-stream marathon of short films built to highlight new and exciting work for and from (but not limited to) those currently in social isolation or under quarantine.

These times provide an interesting paradox: In spite of this current social landscape centered on acts of distancing and heightened solitude, we are reminded — by media and culture foremost — of our collective similarities and differences.

We aim to provide a series of short film programs that draw from anything and everything: works of any genre or style and embodying any culture or ideology will be considered for our final program and curated by our team of artists and critics with the goal of expressing unified or developing themes within separate forms. Works of art that defy easy categorization are especially welcome.
