DAVINCI INTL. FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES 2020 AWARDS DINNER
Although the festival will play out online this year, the Executive Director and team have recently announced an AWARDS DINNER slated for later this year (barring CV-19 social restrictions in LA County), where Vitruvian and Leo Award winners will be invited to come together for an invite-only dinner to celebrate their incredible achievement in the cinematic arts.
At the dinner, DIFF will tease each project with a video clip, then present the physical Vitruvian and Leo Awards to the filmmakers, followed by cocktails, step-and-repeat photos, and a great celebration. Filmmakers will be allowed a +1 for the night, and due to our format, we expect our group to be no larger than ~50 guests.
DIFF and its Board of Directors will remain sensitive, knowledgable, and flexible to the current climate insofar as mandates on social gatherings and the comfort level for our guests, and may elect at any time to cancel this event should logistics or otherwise not permit DIFF hosting the awards dinner.
DAVINCI INTL. FILM FESTIVAL OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCES 2020 FESTIVAL ONLINE. The DaVinci International Film Festival and partners will be hosting their Vitruvian Awards Showcase online later this year.
DaVinci is not immune to the COVID-19 climate, and after careful consideration, the Board of Directors has reached a final decision to host the international film festival online due to the restrictions on live events and venue closures in Los Angeles County.
In such effort, the festival has teamed with a web development partner to present the 2020 Vitruvian Awards online later this year, which will offer a secure and interactive online experience for guests and filmmakers around the world.
DIFF remains OPEN with a Call for Entries for our fourth (4th) quarter qualifiers at filmfreeway.com/DaVinciFilmFestival. Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org
