After postponing the scheduled May event, the second edition of the Etowah Film Festival will be going completely virtual, organizers said.
Running from Sept. 10-13, the festival will screen a mix of local, national, and international short and feature films streamed via RoleCallWatch, which is a content streaming platform that showcases a collection of feature films, short films, episodes, and music videos from independent filmmakers and storytellers.
Virtual tickets can be accessed by visiting watch.rolecall.co. The next step will be to click “Join” in the upper right hand corner, and then find “Etowah Film Festival Member” and select “Choose Plan.” Upon completion of checkout, the plan will then grant access to Etowah Film Festival films on RoleCallWatch from Sept. 10 to Sept. 13. The plan will end on Sept. 14. Total ticket cost will be a one-time payment of $9.99.
Organizers said that, along with films, the festival will include social media filmmaker interviews, panels and behind-the-scenes content.
The Etowah Film Festival was founded in 2018 by Laine Kirby Wood and Brent Lambert-Zaffino, behind the idea that Canton, which is home to a vintage theater, needed a film festival. The inaugural event in 2019 showcased 30 local, national, and international films bringing attendees from around the state and country.
