The first New Holland Island International Debut Film Festival took place on August 14–20, 2020. Due to the epidemiological situation and a number of restrictions on holding mass events, as well as the temporary closure of St. Petersburg cinemas, all films of the competition programme, works of the jury members and some out of competition films were shown online on the Nonfiction.film platform.
A programme of special screenings was shown on the Island’s Main stage from August 17 to 22, while Garage Screen cinema of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art hosted an echo of the Festival from August 30 to September 11.
All money raised from online screenings was donated to the Nochlezhka charitable organisation that supports homeless people.
