The films will be screened in drive-in theatres at the New York City and will be available online in the region of USA. Proper hygiene and social distancing protocols will be followed in the drive-in venues of the festival.
Owing to the concerns over Covid-19, there will be no physical sale of tickets this year, all ticket purchases can be made online in the official website of the festival.
