This Virtual Event will be available for you to watch at your convenience for a 48 hour period, so you pick the time that works best for you! Once you start viewing you'll have 24 hours to watch the films. Invite your friends for movie night. Give tickets as a gift. Treat yourself with a specialty cocktail and dinner from a local gourmet restaurant. However you watch, this year's collection of films will make you smile, laugh, think, and maybe shed a tear. Above all, you will be inspired!
