The ability to hold the 2020 CWVFF this past August really was an incredible blessing. After everything that had happened in the year so far, being able to have a time of fellowship, learning and recognizing films was particularly special. Since then, we have been looking forward to bringing everyone back together for 2021. While we have been hopeful that we would be able to move back to a spring timeline because of the pieces we have already put into place, 2020 has continued to be a complicated time for events.
Prompted by nationwide COVID uncertainty, the team has spent a significant amount of time seeking the Lord’s leading for the best course of action for the coming year. Due to the
situation, counsel, and as a result of prayer, we believe it is prudent to move the event to the late summer/early fall time period once again for 2021.
Because of shifting our timing, we are confident that we will be able to put on a better event than if we were to push forward with spring dates. We have an incredible volunteer-based team, and while (as was shown in 2020) they are more than capable of putting on a great event in a very short timeline, we need to look at the best way to care for them, while creating a special event for everyone.
Additionally, It is our hope that this will make it possible for more people to attend. To the end of helping more people participate, we’re extending the submission deadline to April 5, 2021, and the late deadline to May 5, 2021. For anyone who has already submitted their films, you will have the opportunity to re-submit a more polished version for judging up to the new regular submission deadline. If you submitted your film after November 2, you will receive a partial refund to match the regular submission pricing.
For everyone still holding unused tickets purchased for the 2020 event, your tickets will still apply for the new dates! If you have any questions about tickets or transfers, please direct those to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When it comes to the details for the 2021 event, we want to share those details with you as much as you want to know them. As soon as we have additional information, we will roll that out to you via our website, Facebook, and our email newsletter.
