A FESTIVAL FOR THE
Now in its 17th year, the Reelworld Film Festival is dedicated to harnessing the power of film as a force for social good. We believe great stories are the beginning of great solutions. Our mission is to unlock the power of film by connecting inspired people to inspired partners. Reelworld is for you - a generation of socially engaged citizens who care about how your lives impact your community and the planet.
Watch docs and narratives exploring everything from the refugee crisis to climate change and civil rights. After each screening, you’ll meet activists, non-profits and leaders on the ground making tangible impact in our Conversation Room. Choose from 30+ films and see how you'll go from passive viewer to active changemaker in one move.
Experience the power of story like never before in our Digital Storytelling Zone. Come explore new worlds through immersive virtual reality films curated by our partners HuffPost RYOT. Play your way to change in the Hand Eye Society video game arcade. Get into the zone and discover the latest in storytelling innovation!
The fun doesn’t stop once the credits roll. Kick off the fest with our Opening Night Party as we celebrate films that change the world with music and drinks. Listen to some of the best poets from Canada's spoken word scene and throw it down at Thursday night’s Toronto Poetry Slam Showcase. Or come judge talented Canadian artists as they paint against the clock in our very first Art Battle inspired by films for change! Don’t miss out on the season’s most vibrant parties at Reelworld 2016!
