Vegan Film Festival Announces Free Online Streaming for Earth Day

Due to current circumstances, the International Vegan Film Festival World Tour has come to a halt. Starting on Earth Day, April 22, through June 30, 2020, eleven of the twelve short films that were available on the world tour will now be free to watch and can be viewed online at the festival’s website (theivff.com).

For the last two years, the International Vegan Film Festival has brought some of the world's most relevant vegan-themed stories and visual artistry to theaters around the world and in these uncertain times, the International Vegan Film Festival is proud to bring the festival’s world tour to everyone, everywhere.

Most of the films that were scheduled for touring—the only exception being “Planet Vegan”— are now available for free viewing online with no purchase necessary. The total screening time is approximately 90 minutes in length with films covering all of the four Festival categories.

Festival Director Shawn Stratton said, “Connecting with friends and strangers alike at our theater screenings is at the heart of the World Tour, however, with the current cancellation of the Tour we don't want our audiences to miss out on viewing these important films. So we are adapting and responding to social distancing to offer 90 minutes of films from our World Tour screening, free of charge. This is our hometown, feel-good, theater experience, streamed into the comfort of living rooms around the world.”

The International Vegan Film Festival is an annual film event. Now in its third year, the festival kicks off every October in Ottawa, Canada. The festival showcases vegan-themed films from around the world covering a wide variety of topics. Some of these include animal rights, food choices, ethics, sustainability, and climate change.

Since 2018, the International Vegan Film Festival has embarked on a world tour. Anyone can sign up to be a host and then pick where and when they would like to have their own Vegan Film Festival screening. It is a great way to build the local vegan community, interact with friends, and raise money for a cause all while watching great independent vegan films.
