What we will see this month, starting on March 20 and ending of March 30, will be the product of all these people's imaginations and their work collaboration, converted into 150 movies from more than 50 different countries, which will be projected Online and on demand allowing us to scape, for a few hours, to the world provided by The Cinejoy Showcase which will be projected on the screens of our computers and can be watched in the privacy of our own homes.
