Oxford Film Festival Launches Virtual Art House

The Oxford Film Festival launched a new Virtual Art House today alongside Film Movement with five feature films available to stream.

The festival will receive 50% of ticket sales which are only $12 per household for a 72-hour rental and can be streamed via TV, mobile device or computer. This will only be available for a limited time.

“While we work to reschedule our main film festival, we are so grateful for creative partners like Film Movement for teaming with us on special presentations and events like these to support our work in the film and film festival community,” Executive Director Melanie Addington said. “This Virtual Art House will create a wonderful opportunity for our audiences to both watch great cinema while also helping us to raise funds to bolster our budget as we move forward in our efforts to give Oxford film fans something to look forward to during uncertain times.”
