There will be 50 virtual festival premieres in the festival, which will run from October 7 to 18. Each will play with an introduction or a Q&a with talent. Free-to-access additional events will include an international short film programme, screen talks with major filmmakers and actors, salons and roundtables and a virtual exhibition of Xr and immersive art.
The "in cinemas" element of the programme will feature 12 previews of upcoming films, playing in cinemas around the UK at venues to be announced nearer the time.
The festival has also announced there will be no official jury this year, with viewers instead voting on audience awards for best fiction feature,
