Rockaway Film Festival returns for its third year this October, starting Wednesday, October 21. Things, as you might guess, will be a bit different this year.

According to founder Sam Fleischner and festival organizers, “the pandemic has forced us to reconsider how cinema spaces can take shape, and we have embraced the internet’s capacity for remote connection.” The entire program is free, and for five days starting October 21, the festival will broadcast a sequence of films online “guided by isolation and escapism, representing where our attention has been directed and redirected in 2020.”

The films will be streamed live via Twitch, which will be embedded on the festivals website, rockawayfilmfestival.com And on the website, you can check out this year's line-up and more details about the live-stream.
