Calabasas Film Festival 2020: Drive-In & Virtual Experience

Sisters and cofounders of the Calabasas Film Festival (CFF), Kelley and Nicole Fries, found fun and creative ways to ensure
the show would go on for their 7th annual festival. On September 25, over 150 cars arrived at King Gillette Ranch shortly before
dusk for a one-of-a-kind drive-in experience. Attendees enjoyed the world-premiere screening of Honest Thief with Liam
Neeson. A live DJ, drive-through photo booth, and food trucks were on site for all to enjoy while observing social-distancing
protocols. All guests received goodie bags with
Pathwater, Johnson’s Popcorn, candy, and a
luggage tag from lead sponsor Amawaterways.
Tailoring the festival to be COVID-19 compliant,
they also created a virtual screening room
through their website for filmgoers to view over
25 short films, documentaries, features, and student
films. Voters were also able to cast their
ballots for their favorite films online.
