We Are One: Everything Screening During Day 5 Of The Free Film Festival

Tuesday, June 2 marks the fifth day of We Are One: A Global Film Festival, the first-ever global digital film festival ... featuring content co-curated by 21 prolific festivals from around the world ... streamed entirely for free on YouTube ... that's also raising funds to benefit organizations fighting the coronavirus. Yeah, it's pretty ambitious.

The first four days brought forth panels with actors like Tessa Thompson and Diego Luna as well as with directors like Jane Campion, Bong Joon-ho, Steven Soderbergh, and Guillermo del Toro. It also delivered to audiences dozens of short films, some astounding feature films, a dash of television programming and VR content, and even a short film about an aging Sith Lord looking for redemption.

Day five of We Are One will be no different in terms of diversity and quality. Here's what's screening during the festival on June 2 exclusively on the We Are One YouTube channel.
