"Over the coming 5 weeks, every Saturday from 12pm PST / 3pm EDT / 8pm BST a new Genesis concert film will be made available to watch on the band's official YouTube channel for 7 days," the band wrote in a statement.

The festival began yesterday (April 18) and kicked off with "Three Sides Live," directed by Stuart Orme and originally released in 1982. The performance features behind-the-scenes footage recorded "during the 1981 Abacab tour across Europe & North America."

The Genesis Film Festival will run for four more weeks, airing live on Saturday afternoons at 3 p.m. ET. Next week (April 25), the band will broadcast 1984's "The Mama Tour" on their YouTube channel.
