Empowering emerging Indigenous and racially diverse storytellers to showcase films which inspire social change.
Founded in 2001 by Tonya Williams, Reelworld Film Festival is dedicated to harnessing the power of film and storytelling for social good. As a platform for underrepresented voices, Reelworld showcases Canadian and International films that explore some of the most current and pressing issues facing our world today. In addition to hosting industry panels, workshops and talks, Reelworld showcases narrative features, documentaries, shorts, music videos, episodic content and VR/360 films that spark conversation and fuel social impact. We also have a number of youth programs that we run through the year.
