Hope everyone is doing their best to stay safe during this quarantine!! I know I definitely had a hard time finding something to fill my new free time but once I started binge-watching movies I have been having a lot more fun. I’ve seen a lot of great movies lately on this new streaming website called Film Festival Flix!! It’s got an interesting layout, it’s stocked with great independent movies from all over the world and they are assorted into different collections and channels, making it easy to find one that goes with the mood I’m looking for. I’m particularly a fan of the Indiefest channel but each of them are full of great, award-winning titles!! You can pull a few movies and make a really great Zoom movie night with friends!! If anyone needs some recommendations, feel free to ask me because I have a bunch!!
