Line up announced for We Are One: A Global Film Festival

2020-05-27 00:00:00

Tribeca and YouTube have announced the programme for We Are One: A Global Film Festival. The festival launches on 29 May and features 10 days of digital programming from 21 major film festivals across the world. Bringing together an international community of storytellers and audiences, its programme will be presented for free around the world, running exclusively on YouTube until 7 June at YouTube.com/WeAreOne.

More than 100 titles are selected, representing 35 countries. Presented by Tribeca Enterprises (the Tribeca Film Festival‘s parent) and YouTube, the historic online event’s complete slate brings together 23 narrative and eight documentary features, along with 57 narrative and 15 documentary shorts, four festival-exclusive talks and more than a dozen VR pieces.

The festival YouTube page is divided by day and includes two handy functions: buttons to set reminders for the viewing of specific film premieres and a play-all tab. Of the 13 world premieres, 31 online premieres, and five international online premieres, several stand out. This includes talks pairing Francis Ford Coppola with Steven Soderbergh (via the Tribeca Film Festival) and Jane Campion with Tessa Thompson (via Sundance), and the Emmy-nominated 360-degree VR documentary, Traveling While Black (selected by We Are One themselves). Dreamworks Animation will reveal its first-ever short films, Bilby, Marooned and Bird Karma (selected by Annecy, which has a shorts program for families). 

Also making an online premiere, courtesy of the Guadalajara Film Festival, the documentary 45 Days in Harvar follows 15 maximum-security inmates as they learn about paper production, clay modeling, and other art forms. In a single 74-minute take, Ice Cream and the Sound of Raindrops tells a unique coming-of-age tale in Japan, thanks to the Tokyo International Film Festival. From La Blogothèque, Sébastien Tellier on Paris’ rooftop will deliver nine minutes of acoustic serenading. From Ang Lee in dialogue with Kore-eda Hirokazu to a Thai teenager’s fantasy world born of 410 consecutive tweets, there’s much to be excited about.

“Together, we were able to curate a compelling slate of programming that succinctly reflects the subtle variations in style that make each festival so special,” says Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Film Festival co-founder and CEO, Jane Rosenthal. “We Are One: A Global Film Festival will offer audiences an opportunity to not only celebrate the art of film, but the unique qualities that make each story we watch so memorable.” All audience members will also have the opportunity to contribute any amount, through a donate button or link (found on every film program page), to COVID-19 relief efforts.
