Whistleblower Summit and Film Festival’s film category break down will include screenings of Feature Films, Documentaries, and Short Films that depict civil rights, human rights, and social justice themes all in competition for the best 2020 festival winners.

With this new technological format, we can share panel discussions, virtual events, and showcase great independent films and filmmakers while considering the needs and safety of our audiences. Film Festival Flix is our modern solution," says Marcel Reid, Whistleblower Summit and Film Festival Co-founder/Festival Director.
