You may have missed Cannes this year, but there’s still…. the Fiber Film Festival! This new site will feature films that educate viewers about community broadband networks and inspire them to consider the need for universal high-quality connectivity.
Broadband access is now a necessary service and there is a shockingly high number of Americans still stuck with slow technologies, such as DSL or even dial-up internet access. Filmmakers are telling these stories and documenting how communities contend with poor connectivity, overcome it, and the benefits they reap through local self-reliance. We’ve created an online movie house where you can view some of the best films out there.
We’ve made several of these films and collaborated with other organizations to bring out stories of local power. As the collection grows, we will continue to add works from other filmmakers. Nominees for films to be considered for addition to the Fiber Film Festival, can use this link.
