Viral Film Festival
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Film streaming services are a life line for everyone in self-isolation right now, but it can never really compare to going to the cinema, buying an industrial-sized popcorn and dissecting the movie with your friends when the credits have rolled.
To try and revive the spirit of communal film watching, Viral Film Festival wants you to join in a mass movie-watching-session organised via Instagram. Here’s how it’s going to play out: they pick the film, tell you the best place to watch it, and when it’s over, everyone meets up on Insta for an interactive discussion about it with the festival’s curators (playwright Brian Mullin and Irish film festival programmer Seán McGovern).
Each week’s film programme will be announced on the festival’s Insta. Up next is Spike Lee’s timeless feature about a city on the edge ‘Do the Right Thing’.
