Happy Friday Creative Army!

As you all know, Stage 32 Screenings has taken the entertainment industry by storm. Our initiative has been covered by Deadline, Variety, CNN, and dozens more. We are currently screening over 100 features, shorts, and episodic pilots from SXSW, Tribeca, BFI: Flare London LGBTIQ+ Film Festival, and Telluride Mountainfilm Documentary Festival to our network of over 6,000 invited sales agents, distributors, managers, agents, producers, development execs, financiers and other professionals and decision makers from around the world.

It is our mission to make sure all filmmakers that have been affected by the cancellation of film festivals live screenings across the globe still get the exposure and opportunities their hard work and talents richly deserve. 

As a direct result of screening on Stage 32 Screenings, I'm thrilled to announce that two registered films have already secured distribution, six more films are in distribution negotiations and 80 feature and short film filmmakers have been set up on meetings with industry professionals including managers, agents, and producers.  


Now, we are beyond thrilled to add features, short films, and documentaries from our esteemed networking and education partner Vail Film Festival to Stage 32 Screenings!

Our relationship and partnership with Vail goes beyond Stage 32 Screenings.  We have provided all Vail filmmakers and alumni free Stage 32 education.  Additionally, we partnered with Vail to co-host an absolutely amazing virtual panel called "Women in Film: Personal Stories". This inspirational panel featured actor/producer Lesley-Ann Brandt, producer/director/actor Alexandra Barreto, producer Robin Bronk, director/filmmaker/activist Leslie Alejandro, producer Mali Elfman, and producer Ashleigh Snead. If you missed it live, worry not! You can watch for free on-demand here

This is only the beginning. We'll be announcing more films and festivals in the coming weeks. As always, if you know of any festivals which had to cancel their live screenings, please do have their connections reach out to us at We want to make sure all these filmmakers have their voices heard! Also, if you know any 2020 Vail Film Festival filmmakers, please share our Stage 32 Screenings initiative with them as well!
