COVID-19 Update for The Whistle
The Whistle will not be participating in festivals that are being held in-person this year. Our decision to only screen at virtual festivals this year is in the interest of safety for festival directors, staff, volunteers, filmmakers, audience members, and the communities they are a part of.
There is evidence and trusted projection that we will not be out of the woods anytime in 2020 with COVID-19 and that trying to hold events and open businesses too soon will continue to put our communities, especially those most vulnerable, Black people, brown people, disabled people, elders, healthcare workers (and all the places they intersect) at higher risk.
We truly appreciate that this is a hard year for festivals and filmmakers alike and that a lot of us have had to make very hard decisions in the interest of community safety.
Wishing you all the very best of health and safety during this pandemic and UPRISING!
Continue to take care of each other.
Continue social distancing.
