The Fargo Film Festival will light up home theaters Aug. 26 through 30 in a streaming version of the annual event.

The Fargo Theatre, which hosts the Fargo Film Festival, announced that 46 of the films selected for this year’s showing will stream on Eventive.

Two feature films and 44 short films will be available for the streaming festival. The films will be divided into sessions with tickets available for each session. A pre-recorded Q&A with some filmmakers will be included in these sessions. Viewers can purchase tickets for individual sessions or a festival pass to watch all of the titles. Ticket-holders will have 48 hours to stream the titles.

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, August 19, when the films, sessions and pricing will be announced.

The Fargo Film Festival, which was set to celebrate its 20th year, was originally scheduled to start March 17, but was canceled due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic. The Fargo Theatre closed its doors on March 18 as a precaution and has yet to reopen for events.
