The health and safety of our patrons and volunteers is of paramount importance to Marie Dressler Foundation.

In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we have considered the risks inherent for the community in moving ahead with RearView DocFest as planned.

Regrettably, we see no choice but to announce the cancellation of RearView DocFest.

Not only is this a disappointment for you, our patrons, but particularly disappointing for the many dedicated volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the past few months to prepare an engaging event.

Anyone who has already purchased tickets will be contacted within the next few days.

We will be monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely going forward, and assessing the possibility of rescheduling the event for later this year.

Please continue to check this website for news in the coming months.
