Your mom is a movie buff. She loves watching films when they’re released. This year’s been a little harder for her, and you wonder if there’s a better way for her to catch new movies as they’re released.
The COVID-19 pandemic changed a lot for families across the U.S. Some of those changes may be helpful for your mom. If she’s dreamed of going to a film festival, this is her year. Several film festivals are taking place online. Your mom can attend a film festival from the comfort of her home.
Hamptons International Film Festival
Pay one price for a pass to the Hamptons International Film Festival and gain access to interviews with celebrities and access to new movies. If the pass is too much, she can pay to watch movies that appeal to her.
The Father is one of the movies generating a lot of buzz. It’s a father and daughter story involving a daughter (Olivia Coleman) who becomes the caregiver to her dad (Anthony Hopkins) and the struggles they both face as they adapt to the changing roles.
Montclair Film Festival
Tickets to the films at the virtual Montclair Film Festival are free. She does have to register and get the ticket to view the movie. Movies change regularly.
One movie in this film festival is the documentary about Maria Ressa, a journalist who fought the Philippine government to be able to tell the truth in her news articles. A Thousand Cuts is a two-hour look at how some governments attempt to influence the media into avoiding the truth.
Virtual Cinema at Lincoln Center
She may need to pay a fee to watch one of the film festival entries. Film at Lincoln Center’s Virtual Cinema offers a full pass or a pay-per-view showing of movies of interest. Ticket prices for individual movies often less than purchasing a DVD.
Some of the movies are new films and others are movies that are being brought back for a limited time. Route One is a restored documentary your mom may enjoy. It documents a doctor’s trip from Northern Maine down to the Florida Keys along the coastal Route One.
Who watches movies with your mom? Is she often alone when she watches? If she’s alone and doesn’t like it, you can hire caregivers to join here throughout the week. She’ll have the companionship she desires and assistance with daily tasks like housekeeping and meals.
To arrange caregivers, you call a home care agency. Ask questions, get answers, and schedule services.
