WE ARE ONE FILM FESTIVAL hits YouTube today. They are running a ton of films and director talks all dropping at various points between today and June 7th. They are completely free you just have to go to either the YouTube page or the festival page. My understanding is the videos will be up until the end of the festival once they go live. All they are asking for is a small donation.
I have been told by the festival that they are not giving the ress early access to the films and that we can just tune in like everyone else. That is not a knock, purely a statement of explanation as to why coverage is going to be in real time and not ahad of the curve. (I am perfectly fine with that because I am working on Hot Docs, Brooklyn and Human Rights Watch as this fest hits)
That said because this is a best of the fests sort of thing we have covered a bunch of the films already. You can click on the links below to see the reviews:
EPIC OF EVEREST
THE LIGHT SIDE
MOTORCYCLE DRIVE BY
MY FATHER'S TOOLS
NO MORE WINGS
SHIRAZ: A ROMANCE OF INDIA

WHEN I WRITE IT
WRATH OF SILENCE
I also have banked reviews from the New Directors New Films that didn't happen this spring so I will be posting reviews for MONSTER GOD before June 2 and NASIR before June 6.
Based on my scanning of the slate this looks to be a great fest.
