Instead of a 6-day festival, this year the NFF will span over 11 days and include the use of the Dreamland’s new drive-in movie theatre for outdoor, socially distanced screenings. They also are offering on-line screenings for in-home viewing, wherever in the world you may be. Additionally, they are offering a limited number of intimate garden screenings and conversations. These of course will be in compliance with local and state public safety guidelines.
