Columbus Documentary Week – cancelled, will return in 2021

March 19, 2020 12:00 am

Update 3/14/2020 from GFC:
We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 16th edition of Columbus Documentary Week (March 19–29). This festival is core to our mission of supporting storytellers and amplifying the impact of their work. The decision to cancel and begin plans for our 2021 festival were not made lightly. We have begun conversations with our filmmakers, distributors, and community partners to ensure we’re acting in the best interest of the health and safety of our community.

Though we are announcing the cancellation of Columbus Documentary Week, the Film Center will remain open. We have further reduced the capacity of our theaters. No screening room will hold more than half of its posted capacity. We continue to work with local, public health officials to adhere to posted health guidelines from the CDC and ODH.

If you have purchased tickets in advance and would like a refund, please call our Ticket Center at 614-247-4433 or email [email protected] for assistance. If you do not request a refund, we will consider your ticket a donation to support our programming. If this is your choice, thank you in advance for your continued support. We appreciate your patience, flexibility, and understanding.

We will continue to work through our programming schedule, consulting our community and distribution partners on a case-by-case basis. We will continue to see dates shift. We ask for your continued patience. We are committed to getting you up-to-date, accurate information as soon as possible.

The COVID-19 situation is changing rapidly. Please continue to check for updates online and on social media.
