Reelworld film festival is proud to announce that, for the very first time, 100% of our 2019 festival films are created by Canadian BIPOC filmmakers
This year our programme is 100% Canadian. With a renewed focus on Canadian filmmakers, the theme for our 2019 festival is Home. With all of our films this year, you’ll see stories about people that are forging new homes for themselves or struggling to correct the complex relationships within their families. Some of these households have incredibly dark problems to deal with and some remind you just how important home can be to the life and success of someone. These are stories about finding a home in community, in culture, and in people. There is anxiety, joy, and revelation in these homes and you’ll find characters that are running away from it or running to it.
- Ammar Keshodia, Lead Programmer | Reelworld Film Festival
Thank you to our hard working and gifted programming team, the artists, and all those in our industry who have fought for and believed in the value of authentic representation and opportunity for all.
