However, due to coronavirus crisis and resulting travel restrictions and government regulations we were forced to cancel our events and move whole festival into the online space.  We created section "PFF TV" on our website where we showcasing winning films (at least a trailer if we not going to obtain permission to screen whole film there) along with details of the production company , director and interviews. Each month we are also creating catalogue of some of the winners and sending it to french distributors.
