Due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic, the Marie Dressler Foundation has decided that the 2020 Vintage Film Festival must be cancelled. It is thought that it is unlikely that theatres will be allowed to open by September 2020 and similarly the opening gala would not be possible nor the associated fund-raising activities. Because the Festival is a major fundraiser for the Foundation, there will be no bursaries awarded in 2020.
The program will be deferred to Sept 24 to 26, 2021 when it is hoped that a normal Festival can take place.
