Movie theatres may be shut down for the near future however, YouTube is giving us a chance to stream films from around the world...

Musicians around the world joined forces to host a virtual concert that aimed to raise awareness on COVID-19 relief; celebrities and prolific personalities that range from Oprah Winfrey and Naomi Campbell to Marie Kondo and Julia Roberts will also unite for a global livestream; and Carine Roitfeld is gathering models and fashion's finest for a virtual fashion show this weekend. It's pretty clear that the world is coming together amidst the pandemic.

Now, the film industry is the latest to unite for a global streaming event — and this is pretty major.

More than 20 of the world's largest film festivals are joining forces to launch "We Are One: A Global Film Festival", a 10-day global streaming event that will feature new and classic films from around the world.

Tribeca Enterprises and YouTube partnered up for the free-of-charge event, however donations can be made and will benefit the World Health Organization's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, along with local relief partners around the world.

The event will run over 10 days with support from the Berlin International Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival, Tokyo International Film Festival, Marrakech International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, New York Film Festival and the Cannes Film Festival among others.

The 10-day "We Are One: A Global Film Festival" will start on May 29.
