Also screening with "The Last Ones" is the short film "My Dear Corpses/Mu kallid laibad" (Estonia, 2020; dir. German Golub), submitted for the Academy Award for Best Short Film (Live Action).

The festival will continue on the weekend of January 14-17 with the feature films "Charter" (Sweden, 2020; dir. Amanda Kernell); "Hope" (Norway, 2020; dir.

Festival films will be available to ticket holders all over the U.S. Each session is limited to 300 tickets in an effort to preserve the intimate and communal experience. The sessions will take place over four days (Thursday — Sunday), and all films from the session will be available for viewing on a virtual cinema screening platform throughout this period.

Festival sessions will be accompanied by virtual filmmaker Q&As, as well as short films. Check back to the website for more information about programming closer to the festival.
