As screens go dark

Many cinemas around the world have had to close their doors during the global Covid-19 pandemic. Film festivals have been postponed and cancelled. We tip our hats to all those cinema managers and staff, and to all the festival teams playing their part in keeping audiences around the world safe and well. 

We’re here for cinemas as they reopen and for festivals as they reschedule. We want to help.
