Film festival extends availability of Oscar winners

An online film festival that allowed the public to watch this year’s Academy Award winners from the comfort of their own homes has been extended with new online screenings.

The Crime Stoppers Bermuda Film Weekend will now offer virtual screenings of some films until Sunday.

Those who subscribe will be able to watch films including The Father, which won Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actor for Anthony Hopkins, through their Smart TV or computers.

Subscribers will be able to watch a range of 15 Oscar-nominated short films, including If Anything Happens I Love You, Colette and Two Distant Strangers, which won the awards for Best Animated Short, Best Documentary Short and Best Live-Action Short respectively.

A spokesman said: “The Crime Stoppers film festival gives Bermuda the unique opportunity to watch Oscar nominated and award-winning films that would not have been shown in Bermuda otherwise.

“It isn’t too late to become a sponsor or patron to this year’s film weekend, if you wish to make a donation, please e-mail bcs@crimestoppers.bm.”

Tickets to the extended films are available at thescreeningroom.eventive.org/films.
