CAPA Cancels Cinema Columbus 2020
Posted: July 6, 2020
Due to the continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, CAPA and its event partners today announced the cancelation of Cinema Columbus 2020, a new Columbus film festival celebrating new and diverse cinematic works from around the world. While new dates have not yet been determined, the first annual Cinema Columbus will be rescheduled for 2021.
“This was to be the inaugural year for Cinema Columbus, but with all the challenges of 2020, we felt that a fledgling festival would not be best positioned for success,” stated CAPA President and CEO Chad Whittington. “We thank the Drexel Theatre, Gateway Film Center, Wexner Center for the Arts, and community partner Film Columbus for their commitment to this event and look forward to launching this important cinematic celebration in 2021.”
