*6th Annual NOVA Fest tentatively postponed to November 2020
7th Annual NOVA Fest:
"TOP 100 BEST REVIEWED FESTIVALS - 6 MONTHS IN A ROW!" - FilmFreeway
Unprecedented times require unprecedented action. Just like on set, we're having to improvise when forces beyond our control impose themselves. 2020 and the immediate future will be a continuous course correction. We have postponed our 6th Season to November 2020 AND at the same time, we are keeping on track to have our 7th Season remain in April of 2021.
Please stay tuned for any updates. We will do our best to maintain as much stability, as we have control over. Thank you for your patience and understanding. As always, we will make every decision based on what is best for our artists.
Please be well during these incredibly provocative times!
