Blackbird Film Festival (RESCHEDULED)
New Festival Dates: October 1st - 4th, 2020
Reason: COVID-19 Safety Concerns


Updated 7/25/2020

As October approaches, it has become clear that the COVID19 pandemic is far from over and so we must reassess our 2020 plans to ensure the safety of our community, attendees, staff and filmmakers. Therefore, we have decided not to host indoor film screenings this year per usual. Instead, we are working with our sponsors and community partners to arrange for outdoor screenings - more specifically, a Drive-In Movie Theater experience that is both unique and safe!


At the moment, we are in the process of finalizing a suitable outdoor venue for this event but will provide an update as soon as possible. Additionally, we also plan to run a Virtual Festival along with the Drive-In event for those that cannot attend do to travel restrictions. Again, more details on this will be released soon.


In the meantime, thank you for your continued support.
