The coronavirus pandemic prompted some significant changes to this year’s ninth annual Key West Film Festival, but some of the innovative new measures will likely prove to be popular events even post-pandemic.
One such adaptation is the first-ever “boat-in” movie at Stock Island Marina Village on Saturday, Nov. 21. The film festival has turned social distancing requirements into a Key West original. The double-feature boat-in includes Gene Hackman in “Night Moves,” and “Cuba Reframed,” a local film about the Schooner Wolf’s peace mission to Cuba.
The Key West Film Festival announced today that acclaimed costume designer Francine Jamison-Tanchuck and Oscar-winning director Julia Reichert will be the recipients of the prestigious Golden Key Awards at KWFF 2020!
A pass is the best way to ensure unrestricted access to the hottest ticket in town, and in 2020 we are offering one tremendous ALL-ACCESS PASS that includes insider access, preferred seating, opening and closing night films, access to all virtual programming, and a seat at our awards ceremony celebration!
Building off its recently announced programming theme of films about music, the Key West Film Festival revealed today its opening night film on Wednesday, November 18 will be Albert Maysles' “GIMME SHELTER,” on the 50th Anniversary of the release of the seminal film about The Rolling Stones.
For the first time in its nine-year history, the festival‘s opening night film will be screened outdoors at the Coffee Butler Amphitheater. The screening will be preceded by a performance from Key West-based performing artist Nick Norman.
The Amphitheater will be operating at 25% capacity to allow for ample room for social distancing.
