The schedule for the 2020 Southern Screen Virtual Festival has been released.

Organizers say that everything will be presented virtually during this year's four-day event from November 12 through15.

This year’s Sessions include:

Discussions with Alex Borstein, actress (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel/Family Guy) + John Viener, writer (Family Guy); Rachel Dratch, actress (Saturday Night Live/Wine Country) + Dan Dratch, writer (Monk/The Cleveland Show) and Jay Wadley, composer (I’m Thinking of Ending Things) + Jennie Armon, music supervisor (Found Objects).

Screenings include opening night film, Intention, a documentary committed to intentional artistry, divine healers share their crafts within their Louisiana communities, while preserving cultural traditions; Farewell, Amor, about an Angolan woman and her daughter who reunite with her husband after spending 17 years in exile; and Stardust, a chronicle of a young David Bowie's first visit to the U.S. in 1971 – a trip that inspired the invention of his iconic alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

All Screenings and Sessions will be viewed on the virtual platform Eventive. Full schedule can be found at

Southern Screen says that aside from films, the festival offers music, podcasts and educational workshops and panels.

This year’s virtual festival also features pass and ticket options that include a picnic or a Cajun Crate Louisiana meal in a box for attendees to enjoy at home.
