The Chagrin Documentary Film Festival is scaling up its streaming offerings as it scales back plans for in-person screenings.

Mary Ann Ponce, director of the highly regarded festival, said all of the 101 documentary films that were selected (out of about 500 submissions) for this year’s event will be available for at-home streaming. The festival, which runs Oct. 6-11, is charging $10 per film, or it has packages that start at $100 for five-day unlimited access to the documentaries. The festival is partnering with Cleveland-based BoxCast, a video streaming company, to offer the service.
