World Changing Stories

Moving People to Change the World Through Film.

A story well told can move us to see the world differently, care in new ways and take action. 

Founded in 2001 by Tonya Williams, Reelworld is a non-profit arts and media organization that moves people to change the world through film. We support filmmakers, build bridges between sectors, and showcase stories that inspire change.  Our goal is to amplify stories exploring pressing issues, spark conversations and move audiences to take actions that impact their lives, communities and ultimately, the world.  

Reelworld is a festival with a message.
