Reelworld is the oldest and largest national platform dedicated to changing the face of the media landscape by empowering and showcasing Canadians identifying as Black, Indigenous, Asian, South Asian, Middle Eastern, and Latin American in the Canadian screen based productions industries.
Founded by Tonya Williams in 2000, the Reelworld Film Festival (non-profit) and Reelworld Foundation (renamed Reelworld Screen Institute) (charity) are groundbreaking initiatives in Canada that advocate and draw attention to the lack of racially diverse and Indigenous talent in mainstream media - both in front of and behind the screen.
We are changing the face of film.
