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.

The fun doesn’t stop once the credits roll.
