Join other Facebookers in a general digital watch party over on our Facebook channel. Featuring glimpses of the Festival, exclusive films and previews, it provides a great showcase for the days ahead.
Covid-19 has changed how we can be together, so between 8pm and 10.30pm, we will release lots of digital content and form a bit of a Facebook watch party on our page. We will share project films and stories, comments, images from previous festivals, links to articles and updates about the Festival. We also invite you send in memories, comments or launch wishes on the night, so you can share in the opening of #LIF2020.
The full schedule runs as below. Please note: some of these links will not work until the night as the posts are released. Please visit us on Facebook, where we will be dropping all of this and comments across the evening. Join us!
