Dear INSOMNIACS!,

Despite our Lead Minion’s best efforts to convince State and Local administrators that “COVID” stands for “Co-curricular Opportunity to make VIDeo,” as you now know the Governor has directed SUNY and CUNY to move classes online for the rest of the semester.

Given that one of the most obvious goals of the Geneseo Insomnia Film Festival to bring us all together to make video and drink coffee the realities of distance education are such that the obstacles that a virtual GIFF would present are too numerous to make the event accessible to all INSOMNIACS! So, it is with deep and real sadness that we announce that we are cancelling the 2020 GIFF.

The GIFF Overlords want to thank you all for registering and let you know that we will be back next year. For those of you who won’t be graduating, we all hope you will join us. For those of you who are graduating, and there’s a number of you that we’ve grown quite fond of over the last four years, know that the GIFF Minions will miss you. Your participation is what has always made this event worth doing.

Please, everyone of you keep yourself safe, pay close attention to your studies, and come back next semester ready to kick ass. When you get back find Lead Minion Joe in GIFF HQ and let him know what you’ve been up to.

Be well,
--JD
